Ahead of a crucial run of fixtures, which could be pivotal in the Gunners' quest for a top-four finish, Wenger will have to cope without several important players.

Mesut Ozil became the latest key man to be confined to the treatment room after picking up a hamstring injury in Arsenal's Champions League draw with Bayern Munich on Tuesday, joining Jack Wilshere, Theo Walcott and Aaron Ramsey on the sidelines.

And the French manager revealed he will be examining what is causing such a lengthy injury list.

"I am concerned that this happens," Wenger said, quoted in The Guardian.

"If you look at our overall injury list going into such a decisive part of the season, we have no Wilshere, Ozil, Ramsey and we went to Bayern without Gibbs and Monreal.

"It's very difficult to find an obvious reason why."

Wenger is especially concerned with Ramsey's injury problems, as the Welsh midfielder looked set to return to the squad for Sunday's north London derby with Tottenham, but will not make it.

"That's our worry at the moment, Ramsey is taking longer than expected," Wenger added.

"We have to be very cautious with him.

"When will he be back? I believe it's two more weeks now."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
