Wenger targets Wilshere return
Arsene Wenger says Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is making good progress and should be back playing within a month.
The 20-year-old has been on the sidelines since May 2011 as he has struggled with an ankle injury but it looks as though he is finally closing in on a return to action. Wenger is pleased with the way the midfielder is training and hopes to have him back playing come the start of next month. "He is looking very good in training," Wenger revealed. "Close, it depends what you call close. I would still give him a month. But it looks very good. In a month he should be starting to play again." Wenger is looking forward to the return of Wilshere and says competition for places in the Gunners midfield will be even more intense when he is back available. "Look at our midfield; you have Arteta, Cazorla, Diaby, Wilshere, Coquelin, Rosicky, Ramsey," he added. "There is a fight for places and there is quality."
