Arsene Wenger has stated that Jack Wilshere has the possibility of playing this season.

The midfielder has been out of action after having surgery in September last year, and following more and more set backs along the way he hasn’t played for Arsenal once this year.

If all goes well in training Wilshere will be back training in three weeks' time, then followed by two weeks of regaining fitness before being able to play again.

"Today we can say if all goes well now in three weeks he will be back with the squad. Then another two weeks to get fit. I don’t have to hold him back yet because at the moment he suffers a lot for fitness. But after three weeks we’ll have to."

This is good news not just for Arsenal, but also for England who could use the tenacious midfielder in their fight for Euro glory.

Surely Wilshere will benefit greatly from a couple of Premier League appearances and it would definitely help his chances of making the England squad for the tournament.

Arsene Wenger went on to say:

"He is an England player and if he has played some games before the end of the season it is a possibility [for him to go to Euro 2012]. If he has not played at all before the end of the season I don’t think it’s realistic.

Whether Wilshere will be ready for Euro 2012 is yet to be seen, but it will be great to see the 20-year-old continue his already exciting career.
