Arsene Wenger has delivered a positive update concerning the Gunners injured striker Alexandre Lacazette, with claims that he will return ahead of schedule, according to reports.
Lacazette had a substitute cameo the North London Derby but the news of injury was broken after the game. He has been suffering from a knee injury and become really discomforted as a result during the NLD – he underwent surgery and was sidelined for up to six weeks.
However, after missing a couple games, it is now reported that he will be back in action sooner than later.
“He’s doing well. I think he will be ahead of his planned recovery.” the Arsenal manager said
“It should be four weeks from now, maybe three and a half weeks, so his response has been good.”
This report has come a big boost for the Gunners who are just with Danny Welbeck in the Europa League. New boy Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is currently ineligible as he is cup tied for the Europa League. Nonetheless, the Gunners are now likely to have Lacazette as they bid to win the Europa Cup and return to the Champions League.
Until the signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Lacazette was the lead attack for Arsenal but his form has been short of impressive.
