Kolo Toure could be back in Arsenal training next week after a malaria scare.

The Sun says Ivory Coast star Toure, 27, picked up a mild strain of the disease while back home in Africa on his summer holiday.

He was taken to hospital and underwent tests after being diagnosed earlier this week.

It is unlikely Toure will play in Monday's friendly against Burgenland before the final leg of Arsenal's German tour.

The Gunners head off to Stuttgart for a warm-up match on Wednesday before flying back to London for next weekend's Emirates Cup.
