Alexandre Lacazette has returned to full training ahead of Arsenal’s trip to Sheffield United on Monday night.
The French international has been sidelined with an ankle problem, and last played on September 1st in the 2-2 draw with Sp*rs at the Emirates.
However, his return to training may not mean an instant return to first team action, with the club’s medical staff set to make a decision on his participation for Monday’s game in the coming days.
Elsewhere, Emile Smith Rowe has recovered from his concussion, but he’s more likely to be in consideration for the Europa League clash with Vitoria next Thursday rather than the Sheffield United clash.
The club also confirmed that a behind closed doors friendly took place this week for ‘all non-international first-team squad players, apart from Alex Lacazette’.
The Gunners drew 2-2 with the Royals, and there were no issues following that. Assessments will now be made on the players who were away on Interlull duty but there are no reports of any problems at this stage.
