Runar Alex Runarsson is due in London today to finalise his £2m move to Arsenal.
The Gunners have turned to Dijon stopper Runarsson to bolster their goalkeeping department after selling Emiliano Martinez to Aston Villa for £20m.
Iceland international Runarsson, 25, underwent a medical in France on Thursday ahead of travelling to the capital to wrap up his switch.

Runarsson made 36 Ligue 1 appearances for his club, in which he conceded 61 times.
Arsenal have also been linked with Brentford’s David Raya, who worked under goalkeeping coach Inaki Cana in west London before the Spaniard departed to join Gunners boss Mikel Arteta’s backroom staff.
It is believed that Runarsson is another goalkeeper who Cana had been keeping tabs on, and he is now all set to link up with his former FC Nordsjaelland coach in north London.
