MATHIEU DEBUCHY is set to return for Arsenal on Saturday after more than three months out with a dislocated shoulder.
Arsene Wenger is expected to throw the France international straight back into his starting line-up for the FA Cup semi-final against Reading at Wembley.
Debuchy 29, landed heavily after colliding with Stoke's Marko Arnautovic in January and during his absence young Frenchman Hector Bellerin has established himself at right-back.
But it is understood the feeling at Arsenal is that Bellerin is ready for a rest and Debuchy can now step back in.
Debuchy joined from Newcastle for £12m in the summer.
