Arsenal have received a new injury blow right before the Champions League clash with Bayern Munich.
Following dissapointing defeats to Watford and Chelsea, a much-needed 2-0 victory over Hull City did some help in restoring the team’s confidence on Saturday.
The Gunners are looking to shrugg off their recent struggles and maintain any faint hopes of winning major silverware this season.
However, Arsene Wenger’s men will have to battle without the availability of summer signing Lucas Perez who has been hit with a new injury.
According to the Daily Mirror, the 28-year-old was unable to participate in training on Tuesday morning because of a hamstring problem.
Perez appears to be struggling to stay fit at the moment after only returning from a lengthy injury lay-off not too long ago.
The former Deportivo La Coruna star pulled out of the 18-man squad to face Chelsea almost two weeks ago after suffering another injury.
Below-par displays from key attacking players like Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil had prompted several fans to call for Perez to be handed a starting berth in Arsenal’s upcoming fixtures.
