Arsenal fullback Mathieu Debuchy aims to be back for December.
The summer signing has been sidelined since suffering an ankle injury in Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Manchester City in September, but he is making small steps towards a full recovery.
And he has come out and revealed that next month should see his return to first team action.
As quoted on the IB Times, he said: “My injury is now better.
“I work hard every day with the physio and I want to be back on the pitch in December. I’m looking forward to it.
“I was really proud when I signed for Arsenal and it has been frustrating getting injured so soon, but I am focused on coming back stronger. I am very positive about that.
“Training at Arsenal is an extremely high standard. I’m nearly 30 but I’m still improving by training with players who are of such a high quality, like everyone at Arsenal.”
