Wenger provides Walcott and Gnabry injury update

Theo Walcott

Arsene Wenger has provided an update on Arsenal stars Theo Walcott's and Serge Gnabry's injury status.

Arsene Wenger says that both Theo Walcott and Serge Gnabry are doing well in their recovery from injuries and could be set for a return to full-training after the next international break. 

Players next break to represent their respective countries comes in the week commencing the 6th October, meaning that the Gunners duo should be back in training by the 13th of next month.

It will be a boost for the side, who will have two more attacking threats added to a side which looks packed with offensive quality and pace.

Walcott has been out for a considerable amount of time, after he picked up a severe knee injury back in January, whilst Gnabry has been out since April, also with a knee complaint. 

The duo have spent a lot of time together, as a result, on the treatment table, but their return to football is now firmly on the horizon and Wenger provided an update on their situations today.

"Theo is doing very well, and Gnabry is doing very well too. They should be available after the international break for full training," Wenger said to the club's official site. 

When they do return it will help the Frenchman have even more options to utilise in attacking areas.

The side have a wealth of pace available to them and Gnabry and Walcott will only add further speed to an already intimidating front-line. 

Arsenal's start to the season has been rather indifferent, but they did pick up an impressive 3-0 victory against Aston Villa this weekend.

Villa had previously been unbeaten in the Premier League, but the Gunners dismantled them with a fine show of offensive football and they will be looking to build on that now.

Wenger's men take on Tottenham Hotspur in the North-London derby this weekend, but the first fixture that Gnabry and Walcott could be available for will come on October 18th against Hull City.
