Arsene Wenger has revealed the latest update regarding the fitness of key defender Nacho Monreal.

The Gunners appear to be on course to finish outside the top four of the Premier League for a second year in a row.

That has been based on the fact that Arsenal have not been at their best for much of this season.

However, one player who has been relatively impressive when called upon by Wenger is Nacho Monreal.

The Spaniard has rediscovered his scoring touch this season and Wenger has revealed he is now recovering from his injury and could be available later this week.

“Nacho Monreal is on a good way, he could be available again for next Thursday.” the Arsenal manager said ahead of the clash with Watford on Sunday

Arsenal are set to welcome AC Milan to the Emirates stadium in the second leg of the round of 16 tie in the Europa League.

After a comfortable victory over Watford and of course the 2-0 win at the San Siro last week, the Gunners appear to have regained some of their confidence.
