Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is reportedly ready to resume full training and dispel rumours of a long-term absence.
Wilshere has missed Arsenal's last two games with an ankle injury, leading to fears among Gunners fans that their midfield talisman would miss the rest of this season.
According to The Mirror, the England international has responded well to extensive treatment and will return to first-team training at London Colney this week.
Although next weekend's clash with Reading will come too soon, an early April return against either West Bromwich Albion or Norwich City looks more likely.
