Alexandre Lacazette has completed Arsenal medical ahead of £52m deal – reports
ALEXANDRE LACAZETTE has reportedly completed his medical at Arsenal and paperwork is being completed.
The Gunners failed in a bid to sign Lacazette 12 months ago. But a £52m move to the Emirates is now on the cusp of being completed.
Sky Sports say the 26-year-old has been given the once over by Arsenal medical staff.
It’s suggested the formalities now just need to be completed.
The Telegraph reported over the weekend that the Premier League heavyweights will cough up £46m up front.
Lacazette has bagged 129 goals in 275 appearances for the Ligue 1 outfit.
His arrival at the club will be Wenger’s second summer signing.
The French chief has also swooped for Sead Kolasinac on a free transfer from Schalke.
