Midfielder Ramsey suffered a thigh injury after the club’s 4-3 defeat against Liverpool on the opening day of the season.
The Telegraph report that Arsene Wenger is unlikely to risk the Welshman, with an important fixtures against Paris St-Germain next Tuesday.
The Frenchman has been boosted with the return of youngster Iwobi, and Wenger has the option of selecting £35million signing Shkodran Mustafi in defence and £17.1million striker Lucas Perez.
It is said Mustafi has a good chance of making his debut alongside Laurent Koscielny at the Emirates this weekend.
