FoxSports reports the 23-year-old has signed a pre-contract agreement with Arsene Wenger's side, and will move to London when his current deal expires at the end of the Clausura season.

Alvarez has been a member of the Velez squad since 2008, although a cruciate ligament injury suffered in the same year stalled his breakthrough into the first team.
