Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette will be out of action for up to six weeks after undergoing an operation on his left knee, the club said yesterday.

The French footballer, who was signed from Lyon for £46.5m in July last year had an arthroscopy in London and the procedure was described as a success by the Gunners. "The minor procedure was a success and he will now undergo rehabilitation," the club said. "It is envisaged that he will return to the squad within four to six weeks."
