Emirates Stadium star’s injury nightmare continues.
The 23-year-old England international is set for an operation on his left tibula that will see a small metal plate inserted into the fracture which occurred during pre-season training.
Wilshere made just nine Premier League starts last season and has played in only 65 of Arsenal’s 157 league games since the start of the 2011-12 season.
