Arsenal have been boosted by the news that Olivier Giroud is set to return to training after the forthcoming international break.

The French striker has been out of action since suffering a broken leg during the 2-2 draw with Everton at Goodison Park back in August.

Giroud was initially ruled out for three months after undergoing surgery, but manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that the 28-year-old is “miles ahead” of schedule in his recovery.

Asked about Giroud’s rehabilitation, Wenger replied: “[He is doing] very well.

“He’s three weeks ahead of schedule and I think he will join in normal training after the international break.

“Of course [it is a big boost]. He’s miles ahead of schedule.”

The final international break of 2014 takes place between 12 and 19 November.
