It has been officially confirmed by Arsenal that former Lille winger Nicolas Pepe is now a Gunner.
This is a major coup for Arsenal, they have seen off the likes of Liverpool and Man Utd and not only that, have broken the clubs transfer record.
Here is the confirmation that we have all been waiting for via the Arsenal Twitter account.

The 24-year-old completed his medical earlier in the week at London Colney and has penned a five-year contract.
The club hierarchy promised a big name exciting signing and they have been proven to be true to their word.
There is a good chance that we will see Pepe in action prior to the Premier League opener away at Newcastle United, possibly against Barcelona next Sunday.
Arsenal fans will be over the moon with this signing, Pepe is one of the hottest prospects in European football following a very successful season with Lille that saw him score 22 Ligue 1 goals in 38 games.
Arsenal now has one of the most frightening forward lines in the Premier League, all we need now is to sort the defence and then who knows what we can achieve next season.
