Arsenal Football Club have been dealt a massive blow with the news that midfielder Jack Wilshere is a major doubt for Wednesday’s Champions League match against Bayern Munich. The footballer is still recovering from an ankle injury, and will be a doubt for this Saturday’s Premier League match against Swansea City too.
