.Arsenal have agreed a deal for Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette and a deal have been finalized. It was reported yesterday by many media outlets that Lacazette deal is a done deal and a medical has been done. It is understood that the deal should be around an initial £45 million but to rise to £52 million after ad-ons and other paper works.
Sky Sports journalist Kaveh Solhekol tweeted from his handle:

Lacazette is rumored to have signed a 200,000-a-week five years deal at the Emirates and he’s expected to wear the number 9 jersey currently used by Lucaz Perez who is to leave before the end of the transfer window.
Arsenal fans are eagerly awaiting the announcement of the striker and other more key signings before the start of the season.
The arrival of Lacazette might signal the end of Giroud’s career at Arsenal but nothing is sure yet about Sanchez’s future at the club. Arsenal resumed pre-season training yesterday and new signing Kolasinac, Iwobi and Ozil were part of the players pictured at the London Colney training ground.
There are better suggestions Ozil will be staying as negotiations are going smoothly with his agent regarding a new contract.
