Theo Walcott is set to make his return to first-team action for Arsenal after the forthcoming international break, Arsene Wenger has revealed.

Walcott has not featured for the Gunners since sustaining a knee ligament injury against Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup back in January.

And Wenger has revealed that both the England international, and Serge Gnabry (knee), could be available to face Hull City in the Premier League on 18 October.

“Theo is doing very well, and Gnabry is doing very well too,” Wenger told Arsenal’s website. “They should be available after the international break for full training.”

Asked about the fitness of Nacho Monreal (back) and Yaya Sanogo (hamstring), Wenger added: “He [Monreal] is not far, but he is not ready yet. [Sanogo] is similar, he will be back after the international break.”

Meanwhile, right-back Mathieu Debuchy has been ruled out for three months after undergoing ankle surgery.

Wenger’s Arsenal take on Southampton in the third round of the League Cup on Tuesday looking to build on Saturday’s 3-0 win over Aston Villa in the Premier League.
