Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has given the club a huge boost with the news that he will be available in a matter of weeks rather than months, the Metro reports.
Wilshere was initially judged to be missing for three months after suffering a cracked left fibula ahead of the Community Shield victory over Premier League rivals Chelsea earlier in the month.
However, manager Arsene Wenger sent him off to Dubai for treatment and an extended rest, and the Daily Express suggests that he is way ahead of schedule for a return.
The Metro claims that the 23-year-old will arrive back in England at some point over the next 48 hours and will make his way to the club’s London Colney training base to work on his match fitness ahead of a return to action next month.
Though he is undoubtedly talented, there is a concern that the amount of injuries he picks up will eventually see him fall the same way as Abou Diaby, who spent the majority of his time with the club on the treatment table rather than on the pitch.
