Arsenal forward Lucas Perez will reportedly be ruled out for three weeks with a thigh injury, according to Goal.
The Premier League side, who slumped to their fourth top-flight defeat in five outings following Saturday’s 3-1 defeat at The Hawthorns to the hands of West Brom, are expected to be without the Spaniard until the start of April, at least, following his latest setback.
The 28-year-old, who has made just two Premier League starts this term, has scored eight goals and provided six assists in 22 appearances in all competitions for The Gunners so far this season.
Perez, who arrived at the Emirates Stadium back in August 2016 following his reported £17.1m switch from Spanish side Deportivo La Coruna, has struggled for first-team opportunities under manager Arsene Wenger, though his thigh problems is a blow to a struggling Arsenal side who continue to implode.
The Spaniard is expected to miss out on The Gunners’ Premier League fixtures against Manchester City and West Ham United after the international break.
