Reports in Sweden on Saturday morning suggested the former Lyon man had suffered a long-term injury during his first training session, claiming he could miss a large part of his temporary stay at Arsenal.

But it appears the seriousness of Kallstrom's injury is yet to be determined by the club, who will be hoping to have him available as soon as possible with fellow midfielders Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey also injured and Mathieu Flamini serving a four-game ban.

Arsene Wenger's side enter an important month in their search for silverware and, after a home game against Crystal Palace on Saturday, face a daunting schedule including crunch Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League matches.
