Mikel Arteta is awaiting the results of his scan after the Arsenal midfielder suffered an ankle injury during Tuesday night’s UEFA Champions League qualifying game against Besiktas.
Post-match Arsene Wenger revealed the player had "turned his ankle" and as the Spaniard hobbled through the press zone wearing a protective cast clearly in pain the initial prognosis did not look good. On Wednesday Arteta went for a scan to confirm the severity of the problem and dependent upon the results of those assessments the Arsenal coach could be forced to step-up his search for a replacement defensive midfielder. Recently linked to Cheick Tiote, Newcastle United have confirmed their Ivorian holding player is available having reportedly turned down an $12 million bid from Lokomotiv Moscow; although the transfer fee could prove to be a huge stumbling block with the Magpies holding out for around $20 million.
