The Daily Mail claims that the former Everton midfielder is set to miss the first six weeks of the season after sustaining a torn quadricep.

Gunners manager Arsene Wenger revealed on Thursday morning that the vice-captain would undergo a scan after picking up a thigh injury in training.

It was hoped the procedure would flag up a slight strain, ruling him out for a few days but the results have shown a tear, meaning the midfielder is likely to miss over a month of the new season.
