The France international has not featured for the Gunners since hobbling off in their 2-1 defeat to Chelsea in late September.

Diaby has managed a total of just 33 appearances over the last three seasons and Wenger admits he is not close to a return.

“I cannot give you any fixed date because we are a bit in no man’s land on that front,” said the Arsenal manager.

“He is working, but we are waiting for him to come back. He is not ready.”
