Big Injury Blow – Arsenal Star Striker Ruled Out For Six Weeks

Injuries have been part of our greatest undoing in previous seasons and we hope the trend does not continue this season.

According to report.,

“Yassin Fortune is expected to spend up to six weeks on the sidelines after the young forward suffered a recurrence of a hip injury.

The 17-year-old arrived at the club at the same time as Jeff Reine-Adelaide but has not followed the same rapid progression. Injuries haven’t helped.

He missed all of pre-season, and the start of the campaign, with the same problem and has played just 21 minutes for the u19s in Premier League 2.

With 8 goals in 23 appearances for the u18s last season, Yassin would have been hoping to push on this, but the French teenager, who can play as a number 10, on either flank, or as a striker, will have to spend more time waiting.

Arsenal paid just over £2m for Fortune when they signed him from RC Lens in the summer of 2015.”
