Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette has provided Gooners with an update on his fitness.

The striker was forced to undergo knee surgery last week following Arsenal’s 1-0 North London Derby defeat.

He’s expected to be out for a further month, but the 26 year-old is already back in the gym and posted a picture of himself using a leg press machine.

Lacazette’s injury came in the midst of a difficult run of form. The Frenchman had scored just once in his previous 10 prior to undergoing surgery.

The arrival of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has given the striker with tough competition to reclaim a regular starting place.

A return date on the pitch could occur against either West Ham on April 21 or Manchester United on April 28 with a return to first team training likely to begin at the start of April.

Gooners, should Wenger play Lacazette alongside Aubameyang up front? Let us know in the comments…
