Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger hopes Robin van Persie can feature for the Gunners in the final month of the season.

The striker has been sidelined since November with an ankle injury sustained while on international duty with Holland.

"He has come back (to the training ground) and is doing as well as you can at that stage," Wenger told the club's official website.

"He is out of his boot and walks normally but he thinks he will be playing mid-April."
