Nasri back in six weeks, says Wenger

ARSENAL manager Arsene Wenger expects Samir Nasri to make a swift recovery from a broken leg after learning that the injury is not as bad as first feared.<br /><br />Midfielder Nasri was initially ruled out for up to three months after suffering a fractured fibula during training on Tuesday.<br /><br />But X-rays have revealed that there are no complications to the France midfielder&rsquo;s injury and Wenger expects him to heal in half that time.<br /><br />&ldquo;Unfortunately he fractured his fibula and he will be out for six weeks,&rdquo; said Wenger. <br /><br />&ldquo;He accidentally nicked the ball away from somebody having a shot on goal. Unfortunately he got kicked and broke his fibula. It&rsquo;s not a complicated one, it&rsquo;s a simple one but it will take six weeks to heal.&rdquo;<br /><br />Although the injury depletes his options, Wenger has a number of players who can cover Nasri&rsquo;s usual position on the left of midfield.<br /><br />Andrey Arshavin played there frequently after joining in January, young forward Carlos Vela has also featured on the wing and Tomas Rosicky, who has just returned from an 18-month injury lay-off, was Wenger&rsquo;s preferred left midfielder before his knee trouble.<br /><br />Forward Emmanuel Adebayor left for Manchester City in a &pound;25m deal last weekend, but Croatian striker Eduardo is on his way back to fitness following another ankle operation in May, and Wenger played down the need for new signings.<br /><br />&ldquo;The options are Tomas Rosicky, who is back, and in those two months Eduardo will be back as well,&rdquo; he added, speaking at the club&rsquo;s pre-season camp in Austria. &ldquo;We do have offensive options but we don&rsquo;t want to lose important players before the season starts.&rdquo;<br /><br />One player who Wenger does consider disposable is error-prone central defender Philippe Senderos, who spent last season on loan at AC Milan.<br /><br />&ldquo;It&rsquo;s open,&rdquo; Wenger said. &ldquo;At the moment he is looking for solutions. He has many opportunities but he has to decide on his future.&rdquo;
