Jack Wilshere requires surgery on a hairline fracture in his left leg and is expected to rule him out of action for several weeks.

The news will come as a blow to 23-year-old Wilshere who has battled through a string of fitness issues in recent seasons.

Arsenal travel to Croatia for their Champions League Group F opener against Dinamo Zagreb on Wednesday coming fresh from a 2-0 Barclays Premier League home victory over Stoke City.

It is believed following further medical examinations, the decision has now been taken that an operation is needed to properly correct the problem with Wilshere and is likely to take place in the next few days.
