Arsene Wenger admits he may have to ask Kolo Toure to make a dash straight back from the African Nations Cup as the Arsenal boss is "down to the bare bones" for Monday night´s Barclays Premier League clash against Blackburn.

Centre-back Toure has been away with Ivory Coast for the best part of a month, but could not help the Elephants reach this weekend´s final after they were beaten by Egypt.

"I have not called Kolo yet, but I will try to see if he can take a flight from Accra to London, as Ivory Coast play (third-place game) on Saturday afternoon," said Wenger.
