Jack Wilshere is claimed to have called time on his stay as an Arsenal player, with an exit speculated to be on the cards.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has stated that he would like Lucas Perez to stay at the club beyond the summer.
The Spanish forward joined the club last summer from Deportivo in a £17 Million deal, but has failed to break into a regular first-team role this season.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Lucas Perez, David Ospina and Shkodran Mustafi have returned to training this week.
The Gunners play host to Manchester United on Super Sunday in what could all-but end our hopes of finishing inside the top-four for the first time in 21 years.
As expected by most Arsenal fans and watchers, the manager has rung the changes for the EFL cup match at home to Southampton because of our numerous injury problems and also to allow a few of the key players to get some well earned rest after a hectic fixture schedule.
Lucas Perez has moved to claim that he is all set for an early return from injury, just as Arsenal have doubts over Alexis Sanchez’s availability.
Arsenal fans will be hoping that this latest injury blow is not the start of the club’s seemingly constant problems on that front, which has seen the Gunners hit by crisis after crisis that I, for one, believe has cost us at least one Premier League title.
The good news for Arsenal, and there is plenty of it right now after Pep Guardiola lost his first game in charge of Man City and with Manchester United continuing to struggle under Jose Mourinho, is how the Premier League table looks going into the second international break of the season.
