Arsenal's hunt for Alexandre Lacazette has taken a huge blow after the striker limped off with a knee injury over the weekend.

Lacazette netted his sixth goal in three games for Lyon, who were eventually beaten 4-2 by newly promoted Dijon in a Ligue 1 game over the weekend.

But after putting Lyon in front, Lacazzette was forced to withdraw from the game which could implicate his place in the French squad, having already been included this week.

And reports this morning suggest that Lacazette could be out for an extensive period, putting huge doubts over Arsenal's chances of recruiting him.

The transfer window will close on August 31 at 11.30pm, as players disperse for international duty.
