Arsenal are reportedly set to sign Lyon and French striker Alexandre Lacazette for a club record fee of £44 million.
NAIJ.com reported that Lyon president Jean Michel Aulas has said that the deal for Lacazette will soon be completed.
The Frenchman could finally be the solution to the Gunner's striking problems if they are to sign him this summer.
The North London club have lacked world-class finishers since the departure of Robin Van Persie to Manchester United in 2012, but Lacazette could turn out to be the man to solve their striking problems with Alexis Sanchez yet to commit to the club.

However, Lacazette has been banging-in goals for the French giants since he made his debut for the club in 2010.
He won the Ligue 1 Player of the Year in the 2014/15 season after netting 27 times in 33 appearances that season.
The 26-year-old could be the 'goal machine' Arsene Wenger could be looking for after his bid to lure Luis Suarez, Gonzalo Higuain and Karim Benzema to the Emirates in recent years failed.
Lacazette is set to become Arsenal's record signing if they can snap him up this summer as the goal-poacher scored 28 goals for Lyon last season.
