Walcott, 24, is only expected to figure from the bench at the weekend, but his availability will come as a welcome boost to manager Arsene Wenger ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League game against Borussia Dortmund, where the Gunners will be without Jack Wilshere and Kieran Gibbs.

England international Walcott has been sidelined with an abdominal injury, which required surgery, since September, and has missed Arsenal’s last 10 games in all competitions but reports suggest he will return to training on Tuesday.

However, Walcott’s potential comeback is expected to come too soon for Roy Hodgson to include him in his England squad for the friendlies against Chile and Germany later this month.
