The Daily Mail says Oxlade-Chamberlain has handed Arsenal and England a huge boost by starting running for the first time since sustaining a cruciate ligament injury.
The talented midfielder has been out of action since the first day of season after picking up a serious knee injury in a 3-1 defeat to Aston Villa.
Chamberlain has made steady progress during his rehabilitation, with Arsenal medical chiefs careful not to rush him back.
The 20-year-old has this week recommenced running, which represents a key breakthrough on his road to recovery.
