Robin van Persie is back in full training at Arsenal.

The Arsenal striker has been out for six weeks since damaging knee ligaments while on international duty with Holland.

Van Persie is desperate to prove his fitness to make a first team return for the Premier League leaders against struggling Wigan at the Emirates.

It will be a big boost for boss Arsene Wenger whose shortage of options up front have been highlighted by the Dutchman's recent absence.
