Senderos, considered by many as the best young defender in Europe upon his arrival at Highbury last year, has yet to feature for the first team due to a number of injuries.
The 19-year-old is now playing for the reserves, but Wenger insists he will not even consider using him until he has come through a number of weeks playing without any reaction.
"Senderos needs to play for three months without thinking about anything else," said Wenger.
"He has not played for a year.
"When he has absorbed that first three months, we can speak again.
"Already this season, you can see he is getting better and better. He is physically much stronger but he still needs games."
