Arsenal striker, Alexandre Lacazette will be on the sidelines for four to six weeks after having a surgery on his left knee. The club confirmed that the French forward had an anthroscopy on his knee on Tuesday morning.
Arsenal described the knee surgery as a ‘minor procedure’ but said Lacazette will now undergo a period of rehabilitation.
The former Lyon striker joined for a then-club record £52 million in the summer but has lost his place in the Arsenal side to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who arrived in January for new record fee of £56 million. He was expected to lead the line in the Europa League with Aubameyang cup-tied after playing in the competition with Borussia Dortmund this season.
Lacazette will also be unavailable for the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City at Wembley on February 25, 2018.
