However, it seems that the England international will not have to go under the knife and is expected to return sooner than initially planned.

The central midfielder was sent to enjoy a rest in Dubai and will come back to England within the next day, but the Gunners are unable to give a concrete date on his return to first-team action.

Wilshere has had a fair share of injuries over the course of his career, with his ankle usually the cause of his misfortunes.

The 23-year-old only managed to play 14 Premier League games last season, scoring two goals.
