Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger believes that midfielder Jack Wilshere is on course for a return to the club and England before the end of the season, The
The 20 year old has not played all season after undergoing surgery last summer on his ankle. Wilshere suffered an injury setback in January, but is battling to regain his fitness and reclaim his place in the Arsenal starting line-up. With the European Championships approaching in the summer, Wilshere is hopeful of a place in the England squad for Poland and Ukraine if he can prove his fitness.
Wenger is hoping Wilshere can be back at the end of the season and the 20 year old has resumed light fitness training, but the Arsenal boss will not rush his return. The Arsenal boss said: “The last scan was good and he can start to jog again, so he is on the way back – but we have to be very cautious with him. I hope to have him back before the end of the season, but we go step by step.”
The Gunners suffered further injury worries in their 2-1 win at Anfield on Saturday with Abou Diaby receiving another setback and Mikel Arteta’s neck injury. The Spaniard is hopeful to return in midweek for the Champions League game with AC Milan, where the Gunners are 4-0 behind from the first leg. A spokesman for the club said: “He hopes to play, but we’ll consider it nearer the time”.
