Alexandre Lacazette was at Arsenal’s training center in Hertfordshire on Tuesday to have a medical before completing his record transfer from Lyon.
The France striker is expected to finalise the details of his £53m move on Wednesday and become the most expensive signing in the club’s history.
Twenty-six-year-old Lacazette will sign a five-year deal and join Arsene Wenger and his squad as they embark on a pre-season tour to Australia and China, next week.
Lacazette’s transfer will smash the Arsenal transfer record which stands at £42.5m for Mesut Ozil in 2013.
Lyon, his hometown club, will receive £46m with up to £7m more in add-ons depending on his success in north London.
