On the day that Samir Nasri’s proposed move to Manchester City, seems to be reaching its conclusion, there’s more bad news for Arsenal fans with confirmation that Jack Wilshere faces at least a month on the sidelines.
The Mail notes:
Jack Wilshere is facing an indefinite spell on the sidelines because of an ankle injury that Arsenal fear could develop into a stress fracture.
But Wilshere’s eagerness to get back for what is a critical time for his club has only made the situation worse, and Wenger is worried he will be out for even longer
Although it was highly unlikely that Wilshere was going to be fit for Old Trafford clash this Sunday, there was always the sneaky feeling among many Reds, including myself, he may have made a miraculous recovery, now though that seems impossible.
With Wilshere out, alongside the suspended Emmanuel Frimpong, Alex Song and Gervinho not to mention the injured Laurent Koscielny and maybe even Kieran Gibbs, that leaves Arsenal with a real threadbare squad to face United.
