Steve Bould has revealed what Arsenal plan to do with Alexandre Lacazette now that the Frenchman has returned to fitness (via Arsenal.com).
Arsene Wenger may not have been fit enough to complete his pre-match commitments but another Frenchman at Arsenal who was is Alexandre Lacazette.
The forward returned to first-team training this week after a couple of months out with injury.
Wenger’s stand-in, Steve Bould was asked how the Gunners plan to get Lacazette back to match fitness now that he is back in training.
“Of course, as much training and match time as we can get him,” Bould replied before being asked about the competition provided by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Danny Welbeck.
“It’s great to have good players all training and wanting to play. It’s great to have competition.”

It’s pleasing to have Alexandre Lacazette back in the Arsenal squad. The Frenchman hasn’t exactly set the Premier League alight in his first season thus far but it has been pretty hard to stand out in this underperforming team. Let’s hope Lacazette has a good few months before the summer and returns to his best form next season.
