Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said that Jack Wilshere is ready to make a big impact for the club following his injury problems.
The 22-year-old has had a number of setbacks in his career and he has been restricted to just 86 appearances for the Gunners in six years.
However, Wenger believes that he is over his troublesome ankle problems and has claimed that this could be the season when he is able to fulfil his potential.
"He was until now a doubt a little bit through injuries," The Telegraph quotes Wenger as saying. "At the top-level you need to be consistent with your presence.
"You can play six, seven, eight games and rest one or two but you have to play six, seven on the trot. I think he will be capable of doing it. He prepares well. He has no ankle problem any more. It could be his year."
Arsenal face Manchester City in the Community Shield this afternoon.
