Gunners face Wigan Athletic in the cup semi-final at Wembley next month.
Arsenal’s record signing Mesut Ozil has vowed to return from his current hamstring injury before the end of the season in an effort to boost the north London club’s chances of winning their first trophy for nine year, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.

The brilliant Germany international, who only arrived from La Liga giants Real Madrid in a deal worth a whopping £45.5m on transfer deadline in September, is currently sidelined with the hamstring injury he picked up in the first half of the Gunners’ Uefa Champions League clash at Bayern Munich earlier this month.
However, the playmaker has now vowed to return to fill fitness before the climax to this season – the 25-year-old had initially been ruled out of action for six weeks – in a bid to help Arsene Wenger’s side get their hands on their first piece of silverware since winning the FA Cup in 2005.
“I’ve been a Gunner for 200 days now. From the first hour I felt well in my Arsenal family,” said Ozil.
“I want to finish my first season with at least one title. I’m looking forward to returning to the pitch.”
