Alexandre Lacazette is now officially an Arsenal player after the London club unveiled him on Wednesday as their latest signing.

In an official statement on their website, Arsenal said the French star has agreed to join the Gunners on a long-term contract, for an undisclosed fee.

Lacazette is expected to travel with the tour party to Sydney this weekend and is likely to make his home debut in the Emirates Cup on July 29 or July 30.

Manager Arsène Wenger said: “We are very happy to have Alexandre join our group. He has shown over a number of years that he can score goals and that he is a very efficient finisher as well.

"He has very interesting technical qualities and a strong character. So he is a guy who is a great addition for us, and someone who will help us challenge at the top level this season.”
