Arsenal confirmed the capture of long-time target Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon in a club record deal a couple of weeks back, and that meant one Arsenal fan was forced to get the Frenchman's face tattooed on his body.

As seems to be the trend on social media these days, Twitter user @sxmleach said: "If Arsenal sign Lacazette I'll get a tattoo on his face somewhere on me body".

After interest in Lacazette was reported, the signing was wrapped up swiftly and just five days after Arsenal fan Sam had posted, the 25-year old striker put pen to paper and joined up with his new teammates for pre-season - with the France international already making his mark on the side by scoring 15 minutes into his debut against Sydney FC.

Arsenal publicly called out the fan over his promise immediately after the Lacazette signing was announced.

Rest assured, Sam kept his word and had Lacazette's face inked onto his arse at his local tattoo studio in Hull:

He became the talk of the town on social media, but people, including the man himself, picked up on the fact that his tattoo looks more like former Spurs striker Darren Bent, if anything.

Here's how Twitter reacted:

Nice to see he's commemorated Darren Bent's winning goal against Spain in 2011 at Wembley...

Can you see a resemblance?
