Arsenal have been handed a boost after striker Alexandre Lacazette made a return to training.
Alexandre Lacazette was forced to undergo knee surgery last month, with it being suggested that the forward would be sidelined for around six weeks.
The French international is nearing the end of that six-week timeframe, but the 26-year-old has been pictured at the North London outfit’s training ground.
In Lacazette’s absence Arsenal have been limited to only one senior striker available for the Europa League, Danny Welbeck, but Arsene Wenger will be encouraged to see the former Lyon forward back on the training pitch well ahead of next Thursday’s quarter-final first leg against CSKA Moscow.
Lacazette was among a clutch of the Arsenal squad not way with their international teams who trained this morning at London Colney, including Aaron Ramsey.
