Arsenal agree €53m fee for Alexandre Lacazette

Arsenal have now agreed a €53 million transfer fee for Alexandre Lacazette, according to Jason Burt of the Daily Telegraph

The French forward will now travel to London to complete a club record fee to Arsenal, in a deal estimated to be worth around £52 million. Arsenal have agreed to pay an initial fee of £46 million with £6 million in add-ons, which will eclipse their previous record fee of £42.5 million for Mesut Ozil.

Arsenal will now agree personal terms with the player – which is thought to be a mere formality. The Gunners had initially bid £39 million for Lacazette before increasing it to £44 million. 

The deal will come as a major boost for Wenger although it is not clear if it will help the club to resign both Sanchez and Ozil.
