Diaby has a history of lengthy injury absences and has been missing for 12 months after injury his cruciate ligament. He is recovering in France and told France Football that he believes he will play again.

“I can master my impatience. I want to be back being strong, very strong and perfectly at ease in my body,” Diaby said. “I work hard without asking questions. I work hard because I know in the end I will play again.

“I am still a high level footballer in my mind, otherwise I would have given up. But I never think to give it up. It doesn't mean I never had difficult moments, but I have always bounced back.

“Some people experience much more difficult things in their lives. I know my reward will be to have fun playing again. I have never abandoned the idea to go to the World Cup,” Diaby added.

“I have always kept that in a corner of my mind to go on working. As soon as I will be back on the pitch, everything is possible.”

Diaby, 27, has been with the Gunners since January 2006, when he was signed from Auxerre. He has made 180 appearances under Arsene Wenger, scoring 19 goals.
