Arsene Wenger has admitted that the extent of Theo Walcott’s injury may force his hand in this month’s transfer window.
The Gunners, who are no strangers to an injury crisis, are once again low on numbers with only North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur currently having more first team players on the side-lines.

Serie A Champions Juventus have agreed a fee for Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez, leaving Arsenal as clear favourites to sign his international teammate Gonzalo Higuain.
The Real Madrid forward has been heavily linked with the Gunners and the Serie A Champions since announcing that he is to leave the Bernabeu this summer.
Marouane Fellaini is keen to join Arsenal in a deal worth £100,000 per week, though the Gunners are reportedly having doubts over the cost of the deal.
Whilst the club are keen on securing the Belgium international’s services, the Daily Mail reports that the cost, which could amount to around £50 million, may be considered to be too high.
