The 31-year-old, according to the French source, is believed to have had this issue, something which has not prevented him from representing the French giants.
The Frenchman decided to do the surgery during this period because of the international break. Therefore, he will have ample recovery time and will be required not to speak for a while after the surgery.
Lacazette left the Gunners to return to Lyon this past summer. He joined the North London side in 2017 and had a relatively decent spell. He netted 71 times in 206 appearances for the Premier League club and won the FA Cup with them in 2020.
This season so far in Lyon colours, he's scored four goals in seven games. In total for the seven-time Ligue 1 champions, he has scored 133 goals and provided 44 assists in 210 appearances.
