Arsene Wenger: Injury update on Monreal, Sanogo and Walcott


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says striker Theo Walcott will be back to full training next month.

The 25-year-old missed the World Cup Finals in Brazil because of a serious knee injury but is scheduled to resume training after the international break.

The Gunners will tomorrow be in action against Southampton in the League Cup with Hector Bellerin, Francis Coquelin and Isaac Hayden all set to feature in the starting eleven.

"On Tuesday night you might see Hector Bellerin, Francis Coquelin and Isaac Hayden," Wenger said on Monday.

"In the squad we have Chuba Akpom and Semi Ajayi as well. These are the players that are the closest.

"I'm happy that he [Chuba Akpom] has developed as a goalscorer, because when he was a younger kid, his problem was finishing.

"That has gone now. He's a very good finisher and he has now to learn the tactical side of his game. Then he will be ready, because he is a huge talent.

"He's [Isaac Hayden] a ball winner, he's a good central defender and a good central midfielder. Technically he was working on his game a bit, but now he is ready for that level.

"He [Nacho Monreal] is not far, but he is not ready yet. He [Yaya Sanogo] is similar, he will be back after the international break.

"Theo [Walcott] is doing very well, and [Serge] Gnabry is doing very well too. They should be available after the international break for full training."
