Theo Walcott is ready to make his return to first-team action for Arsenal after the next international break approaching, Arsène Wenger disclosed.
Walcott has not participated for the Gunners since he suffered a knee ligament injury in the FA Cup clash with Tottenham Hotspur back in January.
Arsene Wenger has revealed that both Theo Walcott and Serge Gnabry (knee), could be set to face Hull City in the Premier League on 18 October.
“Theo is doing very well, and Gnabry is doing very well too,” Wenger told Arsenal’s website.
“They should be available after the international break for full training.”
When asked about the fitness of Nacho Monreal with back injury and Yaya Sanogo a hamstring problem, Wenger said: “He [Monreal] is not far, but he is not ready yet. Sanogo is similar, he will be back after the international break.”
As of now, right-back Mathieu Debuchy has been ruled out for three months after undergoing ankle surgery.
