Splendid news as reports making the round claims Arsenal have finally completed a deal for Lyon star Alexandre Lacazette this summer.
The Daily Star claims Lacazette will become the highest paid player at Arsenal after completing a £52m move from Lyon.
The Frenchman will be flown over late for the pre-season tour of Australia despite reports suggesting he has completed medicals yesterday.
However, no official statement of the deal has been released but it is believed Lacazette will earn £200k-a-week at Arsenal.
Lacazette was originally expected to be signed in time to join the Arsenal squad on the tour of Australia. However, it’s been reported Arsenal will grant him an extra week to tie up any loose ends in France and complete his move to England.
Arsenal are expected to face Sydney FC and Western Sydney Wanderers. LAC should, however, be available for the games against Chelsea and Bayern Munich in China.
