Fitness boost for Arsenal as star to return against Swansea

Arsenal striker Lucas Perez will be fit to play against Swansea City on October 15th, according to the IBTimes UK.

Perez missed his team’s 1-0 win at Burnley due to a swollen knee, but the IBTimes claim the former Deportivo de La Coruna man will be available for selection against the Swans next week.

The Spaniard joined the Gunners in August for a reported fee of €20m, but has only played 154 minutes for Wenger’s side so far.

Even though he hasn’t played much so far, he scored 2 goals in Arsenal’s 4-0 win at Nottingham Forest in EFL Cup’s third round last month.

Perez signed a long-term contract with Arsenal and will have plenty of time to establish himself in Wenger’s starting eleven.

He’s a fast, technically astute player that excites the fans and the Arsenal faithful will have another chance to see him in action if Wenger decides he’s fit enough to participate against the currently managerless side.
