ALEXANDRE LACAZETTE has agreed to join Arsenal, according to reports.

The Lyon forward is now expected to head to The Emirates in the coming days.

French paper L’Equipe say Lacazette has already been replaced at Lyon as they prepare for the striker’s departure.

Mariano Diaz has been brought in from Real Madrid as Lacazette edges towards the exit door.

The Gunners are expected to pay £45m up front with add-ons included in the deal that would make the transfer worth over £50m.
