Arsenal have denied reports Jack Wilshere has suffered a setback in his recovery from injury.
The 21-year-old was ruled out of the Gunners' Champions League second leg tie against Bayern Munich last week and will also miss England’s World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Montenegro with an ankle problem.
Arsene Wenger said last week he expected the midfielder, who spent 18 months on the sidelines with a stress fracture of his other ankle, to be out for only a few weeks as a precautionary measure and claimed he would be available for selection by the end of the month.
Since then, however, there have been reports he could be out for longer, but talkSPORT has been told he is on course to be available for the Gunners' Premier League run-in.
“Nothing has changed in Jacks’ recovery, there’s no setback or further damage to his ankle and no concern about any long-term problems,” said an Arsenal spokesperson.
“Jack was told to rest and we are still on course for him to resume training and be available for selection for the home game against Reading.”
