Arsenal have confirmed that midfielder, Jack Wilshere who is on loan at Bournemouth has suffered a broken leg and will be out for the remainder of the season.
The midfielder collided with Tottenham’s Harry Kane in the 4-0 Bournemouth loss to Tottenham and was substituted immediately.
Scans later revealed a hairline crack to Wilshere’s left fibula, the same injury that kept him sidelined for most of last season.
“We can confirm that Jack Wilshere has suffered a fractured left fibula,” Arsenal said in a statement.
“The midfielder, who is on a season-long loan at AFC Bournemouth, sustained the injury during the Cherries’ Premier League match at Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday. X-rays taken after the game were clear, but further scans showed a hairline crack in the fibula.
“Jack will undergo further specialist assessments in the forthcoming days to identify more specifics regarding the injury and also to structure a rehabilitation programme. It is hoped that Jack will be fit for the start of next season.
“Everyone at the club wishes Jack a speedy recovery.”
