Lacazette To Join Arsenal In The Next Two Days - Lyon President Jean-Michel Aulas

The president of Lyon Jean-Michel Aulas has confirmed Alexandre Lacazette should complete his move to Arsenal within the next day or two. Arsenal's opening bid of £39m was turned down last month, but significant progress has been made in talks between the clubs.

Aulas confirmed the deal is worth up to £43.8m, meaning it would eclipse the club-record £42.5m Arsenal paid for Mesut Ozil four years ago. Lacazette had verbally agreed to join Atletico Madrid this summer but the move fell through after the Court of Arbitration for Sport confirmed on June 1 that Atletico would be banned from registering players during this window.

Aulas told French outlet Le Progres “Alexandre Lacazette's transfer to Arsenal could be actioned within the next day or two. The figure reported by the English media of around €67m (including €12m in add-ons) is impossible and not realistic. Arsenal's first offer was around €45m, the transfer will be concluded in the range of €45m to €50m. It constitutes, without doubt, a record transfer fee for Arsenal, [sic] and for Lyon of course!”
