Wenger delivers latest Arsenal injury update after Newcastle win
Arsene Wenger says Aaron Ramsey and Laurent Koscielny will be out of action for 'a couple of weeks'
Arsene Wenger has revealed that Arsenal will be without Aaron Ramsey and Laurent Koscielny for a “couple of weeks”.
Ramsey is currently sidelined with a hamstring strain, while Koscielny is struggling with an Achilles problem.
Both players sat out Saturday’s 4-1 win over Newcastle United at Emirates Stadium and neither will be fit for next Sunday’s trip to Liverpool.
“Ramsey and Koscielny will be out for a couple of weeks,” Wenger said. “They will not be available next week.”
Wenger also confirmed that he plans to dip into the transfer market to sign a central defender next month.
Asked if he will look to sign a centre-half, Wenger told Sky Sports: “Well yes, because with Laurent Koscielny’s injury we’re a bit cautious and we need cover.
