Arteta (calf) will be in the squad to face Hull City on Saturday, manager Arsene Wenger confirmed Thursday.

Arteta's presence will provide some needed stability in the Arsenal midfield, though he is unlikely to replace the offensive production left by Aaron Ramsey (hamstring) and Mesut Ozil (knee).

Arteta (calf) could get back to training sometime late next week, manager Arsene Wenger said Thursday.

Given that timeframe, Arteta appears very unlikely to play against Hull City on Oct. 18 after the international break, but he may be able to return Oct. 25 at Sunderland.

Arsenal have offered Arteta (calf) a one-year extension to his current contract, which is set to expire at the end of the season, reports the Daily Mail.

Arteta signed for Arsenal three years ago, and since he is over 30 years old the club policy is to only offer single year extensions. He remains out with a calf strain that is unlikely to affect negotiations.

Arteta is expected to be sidelined for the next two-to-three weeks due to the calf injury he suffered Saturday against Tottenham, Goal.com reports.

With that timeline, Arteta will miss Wednesday's Champions League match against Galatasaray and Sunday's Premier League match against Chelsea, but he could return after the international break Oct. 18 to face Hull City.

Arteta will be held out of Tuesday's Champions League match against Galatasaray and Sunday's Premier League match against Chelsea due to the calf injury he picked up Saturday against Tottenham.

Arteta had to be subbed off immediately after suffering the injury, though the good news is that there's another international break after the Chelsea match, which means he may be able to return Oct. 18 against Hull City.

Arteta recovered from his ankle injury to make a late substitute appearance during Arsenal's 2-2 draw with Manchester City on Saturday.

Arteta will continue to battle Mathieu Flamini for minutes as Arsenal's defensive midfielder, a position that doesn't garner much fantasy production.

Arteta was unable to pass fit for Sunday's Premier League match against Leicester City due to his ongoing ankle injury.

Manager Arsene Wenger said recently that Arteta "could be back quite quickly," but apparently that was a little too optimistic. His next opportunity to play comes Sept. 13 against Manchester City.

Arteta will not play in Arsenal's Champions League match against Besiktas on Wednesday due to an ongoing ankle injury, but manager Arsene Wenger said it "is a quite short term injury, he could be back quite quickly.".

Arteta's role as Arsenal's main defensive midfielder is a little more secure after Sami Khedira decided to stay with Real Madrid, but that doesn't make Arteta's fantasy value increase much.
