Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed the club will look to claim compensation from the Football Association over Theo Walcott's injury.

Teenage forward Walcott has been ruled out for three months after dislocating his shoulder on Tuesday while on international duty with England.

The Gunners could be eligible for up to £1.1million in compensation - if Walcott is sidelined for the suspected 12 weeks - under the FA's insurance deal.

Wenger told Arsenal TV online: "There should be compensation, of course."
