Arsenal comprehensive record deal for Lacazette

Arsenal have completed the signing of Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon, reportedly to get a club-record charge.
The 26-year-old’s long-awaited arrival was officially announced on Wednesday, the striker signing a long-term deal soon after the Gunners paid a charge believed to be inside the region of €60million.
That sum outstrips the €44m Arsenal paid to True Madrid for Mesut Ozil in 2013.
“The deal is topic for the completion of regulatory processes.” Arsenal said within a brief statement.
Lacazette arrives on the back of his most prolific season, scoring 37 targets in 45 games across all competitions as Lyon finished fourth in Ligue 1 and reached the Europa League semi-finals.
The forward had looked set to join up with France international team-mate Antoine Griezmann at Atletico Madrid earlier within the off-season, but the upholding of a transfer ban for the LaLiga club forced an end to negotiations.
His arrival at Emirates Stadium may perhaps nicely pave the way for Olivier Giroud to leave, even though the striker has expressed a need to remain regardless of getting linked to Marseille, West Ham and Everton.
Lacazette has 11 France caps and produced 275 appearances for Lyon.
