Senior Arsenal figures are considering sending new signing Kim Kallstrom back to Spartak Moscow after he arrived with a back injury, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Swede was signed amidst a potential midfield selection crisis, with both Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey out injured and Mathieu Flamini suspended for four games.

Winger Theo Walcott is also expected to be out for the rest of the season after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament at the beginning of January. 

Kallstrom’s arrival came with kind words from Arsene Wenger, with the Frenchman saying, “he has proven quality at both club and international level. We welcome Kim to Arsenal."

However, soon after his arrival, it emerged that the player had a back injury.

There was some speculation that he could be out for as long as three months, but this was played down by senior figures at the Emirates.

With Arsenal sitting one point behind league leaders Manchester City, they will be anxious to have as many players fit and available as possible.

They are also still involved in the FA Cup and Champions League. 

It is notoriously difficult to maintain assaults on multiple trophies and a large squad is regarded as essential for a serious challenge.

Arsene Wenger will therefore be eager to get players like Kallstrom involved before the likes of Manchester City pull away in the title race.

Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea also sit only two points behind in third place.
