According to reports from France, Arsenal have completed the signing of Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon
Telefoot in France. Claims Arsenal are set to complete the signing of the French striker for €53 million making Lacazette the biggest signing in the club’s history.
Per the report, Lacazette is expected to sign a five-year-del with the Gunners with the assurance of regular game ahead of his compatriot Olivier Giroud.
This means Arsenal will be forced to send loan Giroud out on loan with West Ham and Marseille reported interested in his signature.
The 26-year-old had reportedly agreed to join Atletico Madrid a few months ago but the Colchoneros transfer ban prevented the La Liga giants from completing the signing of the Frenchman.
Lyon president Michel Aulas confirmed Lacazette was close to becoming a player of Atletico Madrid but Arsenal have made the most of Diego Simeone’s transfer ban managing to seal the transfer of the highly-rated French striker.
