Arsenal midfielder Oezil out for three months with knee injury
Arsenal have been dealt another injury blow after Mesut Oezil was ruled out for 10 to 12 weeks by the German Football Association (DFB) with a knee injury.
The DFB had sent the playmaker to hospital for scans on his left knee after he reported for international duty with the problem.
In a statement released on its official website, the DFB said: "The MRI examination today at National Dr. Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt in Munich revealed a partial rupture of the outer band of the left knee joint.
"The treatment is conservative, with six weeks of immobilisation of the knee joint. Mesut Oezil is likely to be (out for) 10 to 12 weeks."
Oezil will now sit out Germany's Euro 2016 qualifiers against Poland and Ireland.
His absence is a blow for Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, who is already missing players like Aaron Ramsey, Mathieu Debuchy and Olivier Giroud through injury.
