Arsenal waiting on Olivier Giroud prognosis

Arsenal face an anxious wait before learning the extent of the ankle injury sustained by Olivier Giroud.

The Frenchman was injured during Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Everton but the club have yet to discover how long he will be sidelined for with the forward set to visit a specialist.

He will definitely miss Wednesday’s Champions League play-off second-leg clash with Besiktas but it is feared the injury will rule him out until November at the earliest.

“Olivier will not play against Besiktas and will see a specialist, then we’ll make an announcement of how long he’ll be out,” manager Arsene Wenger said.

It has been reported that Giroud broke a bone in his foot and a long-term lay-off could force Wenger back into the transfer market before Monday’s deadline.

“It can be (a long term injury). We’ll see tomorrow. I don’t know (if it’s broken). It’s sad for us,” Wenger said.
