Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has expressed his fear that Jack Wilshere could be set for another lengthy spell on the sidelines according to The Express.

The England midfielder is currently set to miss out on Arsenal’s next few games after suffering a bruised bone on his left foot.

But the injury is worryingly similar to the stress fracture Wilshere received on his right ankle that kept the player out for 17 months.

‘Nobody knows if it could happen again’, said Wenger.

‘The other ankle transformed so we don’t know.

‘Maybe I have overplayed him. We are in a position as well where you always need your best players.’

The Gunners boss believes Wilshere is certain to miss out on England’s World Cup qualification games this month against San Marino and Montenegro.

The Frenchman said he was happy for England doctors to assess Wilshere but offered little hope that the player could make an appearance.

‘I cannot see him being available for England at all. He has an inflamed ankle, the other ankle to the one he injured.

He will be out for three weeks and will not be available for Munich, Swansea and not for England. Hopefully, for the Premier League he will miss only one game. We can slowly prepare him.’
