Arsenal have been massively boosted with the news that Veteran Midfielder Tomas Rosicky is now running, on his way to recovery from a knee injury he picked up on international duty during the summer.
The Czech Republic international who made 24 appearances last season for Arsene Wenger side before picking up an injury, underwent surgery and was expected to be back next year, but he has recovered faster than initially thought, and has now begun running.
Rosicky, 35 joined the Gunners in 2006 and was a mainstay in the team before a career threatening injury kept him out for 2 years, he returned and has remained an extremely valuable squad player since then.
He is currently one of 10 Arsenal players out injured and has made the first move to return to full fitness, with the Euro 2016 in his sights.
The Veteran whose contract expires at the end of the season will look to force his way into the international fold ahead of Euro 2016 which looks certain to be his last international tournament.
