Arsenal forward Alexandre Lacazette will be out of action until next month because of an ankle injury, the north London club said on Friday.
The 28-year-old French forward, who has scored two Premier League goals this season, has been playing through pain for the past few weeks but was advised to rest to ensure he did not aggravate the injury.
"After assessments to an ongoing ankle issue, we have advised that Alex will need to rest and strengthen his ankle to regain full fitness," Arsenal said in a statement https://www.arsenal.com/news/team-news-update-alex-lacazette.
"Alex has been playing through this injury for several weeks. He is likely to be back in action in October."
Earlier on Friday, Arsenal manager Unai Emery confirmed defenders Kieran Tierney and Hector Bellerin are both close to being available for first team duties after injury.
