Wilshere had surgery Thursday on his injured ankle and he will be out for at least three months, the club's official website reports.

Wilshere was looking at an 8-to-12 week recovery if he avoided surgery, but a specialist confirmed the need for the procedure. Santi Cazorla figures to see a big increase in playing time with Wilshere sidelined.

Wilshere will miss at least 8-to-12 weeks because of the ankle injury he suffered last Saturday against Manchester United, and it is possible he could require surgery, which would keep him out for three months, the Mirror reports.

While Wilshere didn't suffer any fractures in his ankle, he has significant ligament damage. Given his long history of ankle issues, the team will certainly not rush him back.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said Tuesday that Wilshere will miss a number of games because of the ankle injury he suffered Saturday against Manchester United, ESPN FC reports. "He has a big ankle sprain," Wenger said. "I don't want to talk about it because I'm not a specialist medically. The first news is we are told he will be out for the next few games. For how long, he will need to see a specialist."

Wilshere has a significant history with ankle injuries, so the club will certainly not rush him back any time soon. His absence could open up more consistent playing time for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Wilshere has been ruled out of Tuesday's Champions League match against Anderlecht due to illness, Sky Sports reports.

Wilshere has missed Arsenal's past pair of matches because of a minor knock to his knee, but an illness prevented the midfielder from training Monday. As a result, Wilshere will not be available for Tuesday's Champions League tie against Anderlecht. However, should Wilshere rid his sickness some time this week, he could be an option to play in Sunday's Premiership match at Swansea City.

Wilshere (knee) is unlikely to play in Arsenal's next two games, the London Evening Standard reports.

We won't see Wilshere in Saturday's Premier League match against Brunley, and he's unlikely to go in Tuesday's Champions League match against Anderlecht. The Gunners always have strong depth in the midfield, so this is an unfortunate absence but far from a crippling one.
