Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker will be fit to travel with the squad to face West Ham United on Saturday, according to reports.

Per Mertesacker has reportedly recovered from the virus that kept him out of Arsenal's Champions League win over Olympiakos.

The German defender missed Wednesday's match after he was struck down by flu, becoming the third player to suffer from the illness in recent weeks alongside Thomas Vermaelen and Theo Walcott.

However, Arsenal are confident that he will be fit enough to make the squad for Saturday's trip to West Ham United on Saturday, according to the Daily Mail.

Arsene Wenger has also been given a boost by the news that Bacary Sagna will play for the Under-21 side on Monday as he continues his recovery from a broken leg.
