Arsene Wenger expects Alexandre Lacazette to return to first team football after the international break, following 6 weeks on the sideline.

The former Lyon striker sustained a knee injury during the game against Tottenham last month and he has not featured for the Gunners for over one month.

However, the energetic French striker, who joined Arsenal in the summer from Lyon for £50m, is nearing a return to full fitness and Wenger expects Lacazette to return to the team after the international break.

Speaking ahead of Arsenal’s Europa League game with AC Milan, Wenger said: “Everyone is available apart from Lacazette who is coming back into training but is short for tomorrow.

“He should be available after the international break.”
