Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette has completed a medical at Arsenal before becoming their record transfer signing in a deal worth at least £45m.

The Gunners had an initial bid for the 26-year-old France international rejected, but talks continued.

His fee, of up to £52m with add-ons, will surpass the £42.4m Arsenal paid Real Madrid for Mesut Ozil in 2013.
