Arsenal striker Lucas Perez has returned to training following the end of the international break and is set to make his debut against Southampton at the Emirates stadium.

Perez is fit and the Gunners shared a picture of him training today on the official Twitter account signalling that he will be ready for the Premier League clash against the Saints.

Perez was handed the number nine shirt after joining towards the end of the transfer window. Nine is traditionally the number worn by a team’s best striker, so the Gunners presumably have a lot of faith in their new frontman.
