Wilshere eyes January Arsenal return

Jack Wilshere is ready to make his Arsenal comeback at the end of January, according to the Mirror.

The England international has not played since the Euro 2012 qualifier with Switzerland in June at Wembley. Wilshere has a serious ankle injury that required surgery and a protective boot, but is pencilled in for a New Year return. Wilshere’s recuperation has gone very well and a reserve game against Fulham on January 24 is the date that the 19 year old is expected to make his return. Without any setbacks, the midfielder will be available for the knockout stages of the Champions League if Arsenal qualify.

Arsenal’s midfield has been strengthened with the summer signing of Mikel Arteta from Everton and the return of Wilshere will only help. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is looking for a top four finish and Wilshere could help to fire his side up the table along with striker Robin Van Persie.
