Arsenal striker Robin van Persie is set to be sidelined for six weeks with ankle injury, the Gunners have confirmed.

Van Persie damaged ankle ligaments during Holland's friendly with Italy at the weekend, which forced him to be stretchered off after only ten minutes.

The 26-year-old will see a specialist in the Balkans, as part of his rehabilitation program.

"I will fly to the Balkans to meet with a female doctor who helped [PSV Eindhoven midfielder] Danko Lazovic," he told Dutch TV.

"She is vague about her methods but I know she massages you using fluid from a placenta.

"I am going to try. It cannot hurt and, if it helps, it helps. I have been in contact with Arsenal physiotherapists and they have let me do it."

Van Persie has been in superb form for Arsenal so far this season, hitting seven goals in the Premiership and setting up as many.
