The Arsenal medical team have released the latest injury update ahead of Wednesday’s Premier League clash with Wolves, and midfield concerns continue with news that Granit Xhaka hasn’t been declared fully fit.
The Swiss international continues to be assessed due to a hip problem he picked up during the 1-0 win over Napoli in the Europa League.
Speaking after Sunday’s defeat to Crystal Palace, Unai Emery said, “Xhaka asked to change in the second half against Napoli and today could’ve played, but with some risk.”
It sounds reasonably promising, but we’ll have to wait and see how he comes through training in the next couple of days.
There’s no specific update regarding Lucas Torreira who has been troubled recently by a groin strain and was not considered fit enough to play 90 minutes against Palace, so hopefully that’s a sign he’s in line to start.
Aaron Ramsey and Denis Suarez remain sidelined with hamstring and groin problems respectively, while Danny Welbeck, Rob Holding and Hector Bellerin continue their rehabilitation from serious injury.
