Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed that forward Tomas Rosicky who has been sidelined with a knee injury for several months will return to full training in three weeks.
The Czech Republic international hasn’t featured for Arsenal so far this season, after suffering a serious knee injury while on international duty in the summer
The Gunners boss in a press conference confirmed the imminent return of Rosicky, saying:
With Arsenal in the midst of an injury crisis, especially in the midfield, the looming return of Rosicky who is capable of making marauding runs through the middle of the park comes as a massive boost on the injury front as he could be available for selection by mid-January.
Wenger also confirmed that Alexis Sanchez and Arteta are closest to returning to first team action, with the Chilean likely to be available by the middle of January, having suffered a setback with his hamstring injury in training before the Manchester City game.
Meanwhile, the Arsenal boss has revealed that he is in the market to do some business if an opportunity presents itself. He is being linked with moves for Basel midfielder Mohamed Elneny and Paris Saint-Germain youngster Adrian Rabiot.
