Gunnerblog on Twitter has more on the incident:

The Gunners will certainly be hoping Wales manager Chris Coleman is correct in his assessment.

Ramsey was brilliant for Arsenal last year, scoring 10 goals and adding seven assists in 23 Premier League appearances, good for a sparkling 7.75 average match rating from WhoScored.com. He was the driving force for an Arsenal squad that spent more time atop the EPL table last year than any other team before injuries derailed their season late in the campaign.

The concern for Arsenal is that Ramsey was one of the players who missed a large chunk of the season due to injury. Ramsey has become arguably Arsenal's most important player in his box-to-box role, and his absence would be a huge blow for the Gunners.
