Alexandre Lacazette is at Arsenal's training ground to undergo medical tests and finalise his move to the Premier League.

The France international will seal his move for a club-record transfer fee that could top out at £52m.

Tests at London Colney will dictate whether the club feels Lacazette is fit enough to go on Arsenal's pre-season tour or Asia and Oceania, and an announcement on the 26-year-old striker's transfer could happen as soon as Tuesday evening.

But the Court of Arbitration for Sport upheld the ban and sent Atletico's summer plans into chaos, in turn benefiting Arsenal, who will shortly confirm the arrival of a top-class centre-forward.
