Arsene Wenger: “Perez out. Giroud and Ramsey in squad”

Arsene Wenger has confirmed summer signing Lucas Perez has been ruled out for up to eight weeks with an ankle injury he sustained in the 2-0 victory over Reading in the EFL Cup.

There’s good news though for Arsenal…

“We lost Perez for a while with an ankle injury. Hopefully he will recover but I think it will be six-eight weeks out. We have (Olivier) Giroud back, Aaron Ramsey will be in the squad. We have a few uncertainties about (Theo) Walcott, (Nacho) Monreal, (Santi) Cazorla. All tests today.”
