Arsene Wenger has revealed that Luas Perez has returned to training although he is not yet training with the first team.
The forward has been out since the EFL Cup game against Reading when he was crippled by a big lump of a player. Since he’s been out we’ve had to deal with the media being completely ridiculous and linking him with a move away in January because he isn’t getting any time on the pitch (because he’s injured you morons).
Thankfully, his agent came out quickly and squashed the rumours.
Anyway, speaking to the matchday programme ahead of Arsenal’s Champions League game against PSG, Wenger said, “On the subject of our forwards, Lucas is back in training, but he’s not with the squad yet, though he is ahead of schedule.”
I’m not overly sure it is that much ahead of schedule.
He was injured on 25th October and was initially ruled out for six weeks meaning a return date of 7th December.
