Arsenal will look to sign Esteban Granero from Real Madrid as a replacement for the injury stricken Abou Diaby, according to Metro.

The French midfield has yet to feature this season for The Gunners and was ruled out for the further three-weeks following ankle surgery in the summer.

Given his plight, Arsenal are expected to venture into the transfer window to find a replacement for Diaby, with out of favour midfield Granero targeted.

On Diaby's injury, Arsenal boss Wenger said: You won't see him [Diaby] for a while, the next three weeks."

"I am worried but I was more worried three months ago. His ankle was not good but the surgery went very well then.

"Now his balance has changed so he has to adjust his muscular strength. He has had two small muscular concerns and if he can get rid of them in the next two to three weeks he will be ready.

"It's a good time to get him right as we have a two-week break after Saturday."

The addition of Granero at Arsenal would also provide cover for the injured Jack Wilshere.
