According to the Mirror, Arsenal have been handed a major injury boost with Jack Wilshere set to resume full first team training on Monday.

Wilshere hasn’t featured so far this season after suffering a fractured fibula in training on the eve of our Community Shield clash with Chelsea in early August 2015.

The midfielder has suffered several setbacks throughout his rehabilitation following surgery in September but it looks as though there is finally light at the end of the tunnel.

The Mirror claim that Wilshere has been given the green light to step-up his recovery and is expected to return to full training with the rest of the squad at London Colney tomorrow morning.

Arsene Wenger confirmed at his press conference on Friday that he expects Jack to be available for selection in around a month and the newspaper says our home game against Watford on April 2nd has been pencilled in as his comeback date.

If the 24-year-old does make a successful return against the Hornets, then it means Wilshere will be available for our final six Premier League games of the season and who knows, maybe his return will give us a big boost during our title run-in.

We’ve certainly missed Wilshere this season, particular the last few months while Santi Cazorla has also been out, as we’ve lacked a ball-player in the middle of the park.

Let’s hope Wilshere doesn’t suffer any further setbacks when he resume’s full training this week as it would be a cruel blow if he wasn’t able to play a single competitive fixture this season.
