Nicolas Pepe is seemingly pictured posing in an Arsenal shirt ahead of his club-record move to the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal look to have completed the £72m signing of Nicolas Pepe as the Lille winger appeared to be filmed wearing an Arsenal shirt on Tuesday.

The Ivory Coast international arrived in London on Monday to undergo a medical with the Gunners and finalise personal terms.

Arsenal have supposedly seen off competition from an array of other clubs to land Pepe, including the likes of Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain.

No official confirmation has yet been given, but a clip has emerged seemingly showing the 24-year-old tapping the Arsenal badge as he posed in their new kit.

Pepe will become Arsenal's record signing and is their fourth arrival of the summer after Gabriel Martinelli, Dani Ceballos and William Saliba.
