The 26-year old winger was unavailable for the weekend's friendly with Armenian side FC Shirak because of an ankle problem but Arena says it isn't a major issue.
"Just an ankle [injury]. He'll be ready to go soon," said Arena.
"A lot of players get injuries. It's part of the game his is a little unfortunate, it came out of nowhere, but he'll be fine. He started the preseason off well and I'm hopeful that he'll be back."
