​Ankle injury adds to Arsenal striker Perez woes

Lucas Perez faces several weeks on the sidelines with the ankle injury he suffered in Tuesday's EFL Cup win over Reading, reports the London Evening Standard.

The Arsenal striker, a £17million summer signing from Deportivo La Coruna, was withdrawn after 72 minutes of a tie after a tackle from Reading midfielder Danzell Gravenberch caught his ankle.

Lucas has struggled to make an impact since his move to the Emirates and Tuesday's EFL Cup match was just the third time he had started for his new club.
