Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that three players are coming back into the squad from injury ahead of Tuesday’s trip to Southampton.
However, star midfielder Jack Wilshere, who suffered an ankle injury during Friday night’s 4-0 victory over Coventry in the fourth round of the FA Cup, could miss out.
“We have a doubt about Jack Wilshere, who had this ankle problem during the game against Coventry,” Wenger said as quoted by Sky Sports.
“But we have three players back normally in the squad. The three are Vermaelen, Arteta and Ramsey.
“They should all be back and available, but we might lose Jack for tomorrow’s game.”
The 30-year-old’s contract is set to expire in June and Arsenal are working hard to ensure the right-back continues his playing career with the North London club.
And some transfer related news – Wenger has rubbished the rumours of the possibility of signing Southampton striker Rickie Lambert, saying the club has no interest in the England international.
