Aaron Ramsey has resumed on-field training with Arsenal, according to a report.
The Telegraph report midfielder Ramsey has returned to first-team training following the hamstring injury he suffered on the opening day Premier League defeat to Liverpool.
The 25-year-old, who missed most of pre-season after reaching the semi-final with Wales at Euro 2016, suffered the injury in the 4-3 home defeat to Jurgen Klopp’s men.
It is said the Welshman is unlikely to make his comeback in Saturday’s home fixture against Swansea, as the club take a long-term approach to his recovery.
The Champions league match against Ludogorets Razgrad next Wednesday is one possible target but the Premier League match against Middlesbrough is more likely, or then the Capital One Cup last 16 tie with Reading.
But midfield partner Francis Coquelin will be in line to reclaim his place at the weekend, following the knee injury he sustained during the 3-0 win over Chelsea in September.
Arsene Wenger still has an abundance of central midfield talent to choose from with Santi Cazorla, Mohamed Elneny and Granit Xhaka all vying for a first-team spot.
The Gunners have won five consecutive games on the bounce, as they welcome Bob Bradley’s Swansea to the Emirates on Saturday, looking to add to their tally of 16 points from seven games.
