Arsenal Confirm Alexandre Lacazette Signing

Arsenal have officially confirmed the signing of prolific goalscorer Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon in what is believed to be a new club record deal worth up to £52.6m after various add-ons.

Lacazette, who has scored 91 goals for Lyon in the last three seasons alone, has put pen to paper on a long-term contract with the Gunners and is expected to travel with the rest of the squad to Sydney this weekend for the upcoming summer tour.

In typical Arsenal fashion, the announcement wasn’t a straightforward reveal.

Arsenal have been linked with a move for the 26-year-old hit-man for well over a year and the news of his arrival will surely come as a big relief to supporters hoping to see a real statement of intent from the club hierarchy in the transfer market this summer.

The 206/17 campaign stood out as Lacazette’s best to date. He netted 28 times in just 30 Ligue 1 appearances as Lyon finished fourth, scoring a further seven times in Europe and two more in domestic cups to bring his impressive tally in all competitions to 37.

Lacazette will hope that a strong season in England will put him in with a chance of being selected for France’s World Cup squad in Russia next summer – despite his prolific club form, the player has only been capped 11 times for his country in the four years since his debut.
