Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that England star Theo Walcott is scheduled to return to full training on Monday.

The forward has been sidelined since November after injuring his shoulder on international duty, which later required surgery.

Walcott was confident he would be ready for first-team action by the end of February and the youngster looks set to only narrowly miss that expectation.

The news will come as an additional boost for the Gunners, with captain Cesc Fabregas also closing on full fitness following knee ligament damage.

"Theo will join in on normal training on Monday and then we will see how he behaves with challenges," said Wenger.
