New Arsenal signing Kim Kallstrom could be sidelined for as long as three months with a back injury, as reported by the Daily Mail.

Gunners’ fans were questioning the signing of Kallstrom on loan from Sparak Moscow but it seems they may not see him plat until at least April now after his injury was deemed worse than first feared.

The Swedish international arrived in North London on deadline day already suffering with a back problem but Arsene Wenger was given the green light by Arsenal medics to allow the deal to happen.

However after key testing Kallstrom appears to have a serious issue with muscles in his back and could now be out for up to three months in order for the injury to heal.

Arsenal tried and failed to make any more signings on deadline day and face Crystal Palace at home today with a chance to return to the top of the table with Chelsea facing Manchester City tomorrow.
