Arsenal star Jack Wilshere’s ankle injury is worse than initially expected, meaning he may miss up to three months of football, according to reports from the Mirror.
Wilshere picked up an injury in training before their 1-0 Community Shield win over Chelsea on Sunday, but the prognosis suggested that the England international would be back after a short rest.
However, recent scans have revealed that Wilshere may have a hairline fracture in his left fibula, which is set to keep the 23-year-old out for much longer.
Now he is hoping that a surgery will not be required, as if so Wilshere will be kept out for three whole months.
Yet, even if the luckless star does not need to go under the knife, he will be out for at least six to eight weeks, meaning he will miss England’s Euro 2016 qualifiers against San Marino and Switzerland in September.
Wilshere’s injury issues caused him to make just 14 appearances in the Premier League last season, scoring two goals.
