Jack Wilshere is on course to make his comeback

for Arsenal in time for Christmas, according to


The 23-year-old midfielder has not kicked a ball

this season after suffering a hairline fracture of his

leg in pre-season, but the Sunday Mirror claims

the England man is closing in on a return to action

His recovery has gone according to plan and

Arsenal are confident he will be back to fitness for

the matches at Southampton on Boxing Day, the

home game with Bournemouth two days later and

Newcastle at The Emirates on January 2.

And that will come as a huge shot in the arm to

boss Arsene Wenger, who is without Theo Walcott,

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Hector Bellerin and

Danny Welbeck as well as Wilshere.

Wilshere, who last month described his latest injury

as a “freak incident” in training, has admitted he

“might have to calm down a bit in training” in a bid

to stay injury free.

The one-club Wilshere has won 28 England caps

and Spain great Xavi claimed he would be one of

the world’s best if he could stay clear of injuries.
