Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is recovering from his latest ankle injury, but he has been assured that it is not too serious.
According to The Mirror, Wilshere will be able to return in a month to help Arsenal take on Stoke City on Saturday, September 12.
The 23-year-old midfielder suffered his injury in training prior to the Gunners’ 1-0 FA Community Shield victory over Chelsea.
Wilshere has suffered a series of injuries throughout his career, but manager Arsene Wenger is confident that the midfielder can stay healthy going forward.
“Jack learns. He is intelligent. But I also believe that your body settles down at the age of 23,” Wenger said.
“I have seen many, I have developed many, many young players and many of them were injury-prone at the ages of 19, 20 and 21.”
The England international is still hoping to realise his full potential, as he has been limited to no more than 25 Premier League appearances in each of the last three seasons.
He has scored only five goals during that span, but the Gunners are hoping to add scoring help with targets such as Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema.
