Gunners ace could be back in contention against ailing Reds.
Arsenal forward Theo Walcott is targeting this weekend’s clash with Liverpool as the ideal time for him to make a comeback, according to the Daily Star.
England winger Walcott is hoping to shake off his groin injury to make the Gunners’ squad to face the misfiring Reds.
The problem has kept Walcott out of the previous seven games since making his initial comeback from a cruciate knee ligament injury that had kept him out since the star of the year.
However, where there may be good news for Walcott, there is considerably more grave news for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who could miss out face some time out with a groin injury picked up in the weekend’s win over Newcastle United.
“We cannot afford to lose him at the moment. I hope it’s nothing bad,” Arsene Wenger said.
“He had a little bit of inflammation before the game. I took him to Galatasaray and maybe two games was a lot for him.”
