Serge Gnabry has taken to social media to reveal his delight after making his return to Arsenal training this week.

The German forward has been sidelined with a knee injury but returned to the training pitch as the Gunners prepared to travel to Brighton and Hove Albion in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Sunday afternoon.

Manager Arsene Wenger revealed last week that Gnabry is well on his way to returning to full fitness but will need some game-time with the Gunners’ Under-21 side before making a comeback in the first team.

And Gnabry, 19, took to Instagram on Saturday afternoon to post a picture of himself in training with Mesut Ozil as he trained with the Gunner’ first-team.

Gnabry shared the photo above on his Instagram account and wrote: “Training with the ball … Together with the team. I finally feel good and am able to look very positively into the future! Good luck to my teammates for the match tomorrow! ‪#‎KeepWorkingHard‬ ‪#‎COYG‬ Arsenal”

Arsenal host Aston Villa at Emirates Stadium in the Premier League next weekend after their FA Cup clash in Brighton.
