Arsenal will give fitness tests to midfielder Aaron Ramsey (thigh) and Mathieu Flamini (shoulder) ahead of Saturday's Premier League trip to Swansea.

England forward Theo Walcott has responded well to surgery on a minor abdominal problem, but is now set for up to five weeks recovery time.

Czech playmaker Tomas Rosicky (thigh) could return for next week's Champions League game against Napoli, but Santi Cazorla (ankle), Yaya Sanogo (back), Lukas Podolski (hamstring), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Abou Diaby (both knee) are all out.

Provisional Squad: Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs, Gnabry, Flamini, Ozil, Ramsey, Wilshere, Giroud, Fabianski, Monreal, Arteta, Miyaichi, Fabianski, Jenkinson, Vermaelen, Bendtner, Frimpong.
