32-Year-Old Midfielder Arsenal Premier
Arteta had surgery on his injured ankle this week, and he is expected to miss three months. "He had a limited mobility in his ankle and some persistent inflammation that had an impact on his calf," manager Arsene Wenger said.
The news of ankle surgery was a bit surprising given Arteta was believed to be suffering from a calf injury, but Wenger's explanation helps understand the situation. Arteta isn't a huge fantasy asset in most formats, though he does take the penalties for Arsenal when he is fit. Aaron Ramsey is back from injury, so he is likely to head back into the starting XI in Arteta's place.
