Wilshere has not been able to play any of the major games this season after he got injured while playing the pre-season friendly against New York Red Bulls earlier. He injured his right ankle and recently had surgery done and will be out for 4 to 5 months.

He went through surgery at the Central London Hospital the morning of Tuesday 27th, the club’s official website stated. He will now go through rehabilitation where he will recover to return in better form after a couple of months where his team will have to go on without him till then.

Wilshere’s personal statement said “I’ve had my operation this morning and all went well. My ankle is little bit sore, but I’m already looking forward to working hard to get fit and playing again”.

He had not considered undergoing a surgery earlier however the worsened situations left him with no other option. Wilshere is expected to be back to the club by February.

This has come as a bad news to the club who has been struggling lately with their performances. Earlier, Van Persie also made a statement saying that he was in no hurry to commit his long-term future to the club. Persie made his 100th gunners goal in Saturday’s match against Bolton. The skipper’s form is the boost that the club needs at the moment in all hopes to turn the season around in their favor.

Persie was supposedly assured by Wenger of his bright future if he were to commit long term to the club. Earlier, other players like Fabregas and Nasri left the club, refusing to extend their contracts. It would come as another conflict to Wenger if Persie would be another one to leave the club in its struggling period.

“Maybe I’ll leave it [talks] because the main thing for me is the team and that we play well. I do believe you have to look for a right moment to sit down and speak about your own stuff”, Persie said to a number of publications.

Persie also said that this was not the time to make such decisions as the team has several crucial upcoming games. He said that it would not be clever to jump to decisions mid-season.

Wenger would be in hope of the same thing, as he needs his skipper in full form this season.
