Arsenal woes with injuries seem to be never ending. The list of injured players is scaling up day by day and the latest player to join the list is Santi Cazorla, who has an important role in Wenger’s plans and it would be a very difficult hole to fill in the midfield.

Santi Cazorla could be out for three months with a knee ligament injury and may not be available until march which has put Wenger into crisis.

Cazorla damaged his knee ligaments in the match against Norwich and this has exposed Arsenal’s midfield now and Wenger is forced to search for a suitable replacement.

With central midfielder, Francis Coquelin, also nursing an injury, Arsenal will have to sort out their issues in the January transfer window.

Wenger is fearing the upcoming price hike in January and is certain that he will be ripped off and has to pay nonchalantly to get the required players.

He will have to use the services of Aaron Ramsey and Mathieu Flamini, who the club has been trying to sell, in central midfield.

Alexis Sanchez too had an injury in the Norwich game, but is expected to return faster than Cazorla.

The Gunners fear that the prices will be hiked by other clubs, knowing the injury situation present in Arsenal.

According to news reports, here is the list of players injured and their probable comeback time.

Francis Coquelin – Knee Injury – March

Santi Cazorla – Knee injury – March

Danny Welback – Knee injury – January third week

Tomas Rosicky – Knee injury – January first week

Theo Walcott – Calf Strain – December second week

Jack Wilshere – Calf strain – December second week

Alexis Sanchez – Hamstring – December third week

Mikel Arteta – Knock – December second week

Laurent Koscielny – Thigh – December first week

Kieran Gibbs – Shin/calf – December first week

With at least 3 to 4 major players injured for quite a long period of time, it has to be seen how Wenger will utilize the other players and bring in replacements in January to be in contention for the Premier league title.
