Arsenal fears lengthy Wilshere layoff

Jack Wilshere has been forced out of Arsenal's trip to Bayern Munich after injuring the same ankle that contributed to his 16-month layoff.

The midfielder sustained the injury to his right ankle against Tottenham in the north London derby and has been recuperating in Dubai.

“Jack Wilshere is out," Wenger confirmed on Tuesday. "He has an inflamed ankle. I could see in the last couple of games he had started to dig deep. He has played 30 games. For us it is not welcome but maybe for him it is not bad that he has a little breather."
