Arsenal are delighted with what he's seeing from Jack Wilshere in his playing comeback.

Arsene Wenger has urged caution over Wilshere's rehabilitation, but captain Thomas Vermaelen is in no doubt what an asset the youngster will be when fully match-fit.

"For me, he can be one of the best midfielders in the world. He has the potential for that," Vermaelen told Arsenal Player.

"He looks much stronger and that's good.

"I am really happy he is coming back now. Jack is working on his match-fitness and that is the most important thing. I think in the future [he] will lift the team."
