Arsenal have confirmed the £52m record signing of France striker Alexandre Lacazette .
Lacazette has joined on a five year contract from Lyon and beats the previous transfer record set by Mesut Ozil’s £42.5m deal in 2013.
Arsenal expect Lacazette to join up on their pre-season trip to Australia and China and the France international has already set his sights on helping the club back into the Champions League.
Lacazette was convinced to join Arsenal by the influence of Arsene Wenger who tried to get him last year but has finally got his man.
The 26-year-old has landed a bumper £200,000-per-week deal that will make him the top earner at the Emirates.
