Arsenal star faces further THREE MONTHS on the sidelines after suffering injury setback

Arsenal have been rocked by the news that injury-prone midfielder Jack Wilshere could be out of action for a further three months, Mail Sport reports.

The England international is yet to make an appearance this season after sustaining yet another ankle injury in the build up to the Community Shield clash against Chelsea at the start of last month.

He was initially ruled out for a month and was earmarked to return for the Gunners against Stoke City on Saturday afternoon, but manager Arsene Wenger confirmed the 23-year-old was making slow progress in his recovery and couldn’t provide a date as to when he would be back in action.

Wilshere is now reportedly seeking the best advice on how to get back to full fitness and the option of surgery has not been ruled out, although that could sideline him until December.
