Premier League side Arsenal have leaked a video showing their imminent new signing Nicolas Pepe wearing their kit.

BBC Sport reporter David Ornstein reported over the weekend that Lille have agreed to accept a £72m fee in instalments to suit the Gunners.

The French side also agreed a deal with Napoli for Pepe but the player chose a move to the Emirates Stadium when given a straight choice between the two clubs.

And now the deal, which will be a club-record fee for Arsenal, is on the cusp of being announced with the transfer set to eclipse the £56m they paid for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

A short video was leaked late on Tuesday showing the Ivory Coast international wearing the new home kit with a green screen in the background.
