The 20-year-old suffered a “small fracture to his left fibula” during the Premier League opener
Arsenal are worried that Ainsley Maitland-Niles won’t return until mid-November.
The 20-year-old suffered a “small fracture to his left fibula” during their Premier League opener against Manchester City.
The young midfielder-cum-leftback suffered the injury during an innocuous coming together with Kyle Walker and the Gunners had stated that he would be out for somewhere between six to eight weeks.
But the club now don’t expect the former Ipswich loanee to return to training until November.
As such the England Under-21 international could spend as much as 12 weeks on the sidelines instead.
Club captain Laurent Koscielny has returned to London Colney however, as he continues his rehab after Achilles tendon surgery, having torn his Achilles during last season’s Europa League semi-final loss to Atletico Madrid.
