According to multiple reports, Arsenal will announce the club record signing of Alexandre Lacazette today.
Lacazette will sign a five-year deal worth £200,000-a-week to become the club’s highest earner. The deal will be announced later this afternoon in order to comply with the French stock market, on which, Lyon are listed. Lacazette had his medical at the club yesterday and was introduced to the team at Arsenal’s Colney training base, ahead of the club’s tour of Asia and Australia – which Lacazette will be a part of.
The move, however, does mean that there is a possibility that Olivier Giroud could leave the club with Everton ready to bid £20 million for the Arsenal striker.
