Cape Town - Arsenal are close to completing the signing of Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez.
Sanchez has been linked with a move to both Liverpool and Juventus but has agreed to move to London instead.
The BBC have confirmed that the two clubs have reached a deal in principle and the 25-year-old has agreed personal terms.
The medical is set to take place today as Sanchez gave his agent the authority to conclude the deal.
Arsenal are set to pay in the region of £30 million for the Chile international.
The Chilean star joined Barca from Udinese in 2011 and has scored 43 goals in 119 appearances.
Arsenal will unveil their new PUMA kit this evening but it is thought that Sanchez will not attend the launch.
