- Alexandre Lacazette will be out of action for up to six weeks after undergoing surgery on his knee
- The 26-year-old has lost his starting place in Arsenal’s line up since the arrival of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
- Lacazette’s last goal for Arsenal was in a Premier League match last month against Crystal Palace
Arsenal have confirmed that striker Alexandre Lacazette will be out of action for up to six weeks after sustaining a knee injury.
Lacazette underwent surgery on Tuesday, February 13, and he is expected to be out of action for at least a month until he fully recovers.
A statement on the club's official website read: "Striker Alex Lacazette had an arthroscopy on his left knee in London on Tuesday morning."
The 26-year-old has lost his first team shirt to new signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, which leaves Danny Welbeck as the only striking option for Arsene Wenger after Olivier Giroud was sold to Chelsea.
Lacazette has scored one goal this year and missed Arsenal’s best chance for an equalizer in time added on against Tottenham at Wembley last weekend.
