Arsenal manager Unai Emery has revealed that Alexandre Lacazette is unlikely to return for the weekend’s Premier League clash against Bournemouth.
The France international has been out of action for the past month with a minor ankle problem but he has recently returned to individual training to step up his fitness.
Speaking ahead of the Cherries game, Emery revealed that he has no injuries to contend with but Lacazette is unlikely to be ready and will continue working away from the team.
In the absence of Lacazette, the Gunners have continue to fare impressively across all competitions and Bukayo Saka has been one of the players, who has taken advantage of the void left by the Frenchman.
The youngster has started on the left wing in the past two league games but he could face competition for the Cherries clash with Gabriel Martinelli in sparkling form with four goals and an assist from just two starts.
