Arsene Wenger sets Wilshere return date, confirms Gnabry will be loaned out


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says midfielder Jack Wilshere should be able to resume practice before the end of the month.

The Englishman will miss Sunday's Premier League opener against West Ham United after suffering an ankle injury although the Frenchman rejected claims that he suffered a recurrence of one of his previous ankle injuries.

"The news that we got on Thursday is that it could be much shorter than expected as it is two weeks in the boot and maybe after he can practice straight away again," Wenger told reporters.

"The positive news with this injury is that it’s not a recurrence of one of his former injuries.

"It's bad luck and purely accidental. He's down but he's coping with it. He'll play with the same confidence and desire when he comes back."

The Frenchman also confirmed that striker Serge Gnabry will be loaned out to West Bromwich Albion.

"He is going to West Brom," Wenger explained.

"I think he had the medical on Thursday, we will confirm it today,"
