Emmanuel Frimpong has undergone surgery for a knee problem.
Arsenal confirmed the midfielder went under the knife this week and should be back within a couple of months having picked up an injury during Fulham’s final league game of the season against Swansea City.
The Ghanian midfielder joined the Cottagers on loan in January but made just two starts in that time. It’s another blow, following serious cruciate injuries to both knees in successive seasons.
For once, however, the timing appears to be on his side. Coming at the end of the season he won’t miss any games and should, all going well, be back in time for the start of the new campaign.
Who he’s playing for remains to be seen.
