Arsenal boosted as Walcott returns to action

Arsenal are expected to soon receive a major boost with the impending return of Theo Walcott to the senior line-up.

The 25-year old winger turned out for the Gunners U21s side on Friday in a 0-0 draw with Blackburn Rovers at Boreham Wood, playing 45 minutes before being subbed off at half-time.

Walcott has been sidelined since suffering cruciate ligament damage in his knee in a FA Cup tie with Tottenham in January but is now on the way back to Arsene Wenger's first team after successfully getting through some competitive game time.

Also in the Arsenal U21 side was talented midfielder Serge Gnabry who has recently been out of action with a knee problem but was back in training with the senior squad on Monday.
