Lyon striker, Alexandre Lacazette, is expected to finally travel to London this week, to undergo his medical examination with Arsenal and finalize his move to the Emirates.
Manager Arsene Wenger, has turned his focus to the 26-year-old, after not making much progress in his pursuit of Monaco striker, Kylian Mbappe.
The Gunners saw their first bid turned down, but Lyon president Jean Michel Aulas, has hinted that a deal could be done in “one or two days”.
“The first offer made by Arsenal was €45m. The deal will happen for something between €45m and €50m.
“To be close to €50m is something unique, and will be without a doubt a record for Arsenal and a record for Lyon absolutely,” he told French media on Sunday.
L’Equipe reports that Lacazette will now fly to London on Tuesday or Wednesday.
