After the news that Lucas Perez had returned to Spain to continue his recuperation from an ankle injury, the Arsenal striker has provided some welcome good news on the injury front.
As Arsene Wenger frets over Alexis Sanchez’s hamstring, and the news that Hector Bellerin has suffered ankle ligament damage, the 28 year old may well help ease the crisis by coming back earlier than expected.
He’s currently back at home training with former club Deportivo la Coruña and he says he’s on course for a comeback ahead of schedule.
Trabajando ya sobre el césped. Working already on the pitch. On track for an early recovery. ? https://t.co/J3vvVZxJWn

The video he posted with his Tweet shows him doing some light running, tip-toeing around cones, and hardly sprinting and running hard, but if he’s ahead of schedule then that’s got to be a good thing.
