London, Mar. 11 : Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is looking to sign on a standby goal keeper after learning that first choice Wojciech Szczesny is out for up to six weeks with a tendon injury.
The Pole dislocated a finger saving a Dani Alves free kick against Barcelona and a scan revealed a tendon problem, the Sun reports.
Though the injury is not as serious as first feared, Wenger, who last week recalled James Shea, 19, from Southampton, still wants another stopper as cover for Manuel Almunia.
The Arsenal manager said: "Szczesny has a dislocated finger with a tendon problem and we need the assessment of a specialist. He had a scan. He is out for a while, for how long I can''t tell you. We will look for an emergency keeper and I have somebody in mind but it won''t be in time for this weekend. We have not asked the Premier League yet." (ANI)
