Wenger reveals return date for Arsenal star Lucas Perez

Lucas Perez has returned to training and could be in contention for Arsenal’s EFL Cup clash against Southampton next Wednesday.

The £17 million summer signing hasn’t featured for the Gunners since the 2-0 victory over Reading a month ago due to an ankle injury.

But the 28-year-old returned to full training on Friday and while Sunday’s clash against Bournemouth will come too soon for the Spaniard, he could make his comeback next week.

‘Cazorla and Bellerin are still out,’ said Wenger.

‘Lucas trained today and might be in contention for Wednesday. One training session is not enough.’
