Arsenal have been handed a boost ahead of the Manchester City game in 7 days time. The Gunners have ample time to rest before they square up against the Citizens and with latest developments, he is set to play in the next game.
The Chile international was sent to his home country to undergo further treatment from his National team’s doctors who Wenger believes are in better position to help him recover from the hamstring injury.
Last week, the manager also confirmed that he has started running and is way ahead of schedule. The Chile doctors have certified him injury-free but reportedly not match ready.
The player has long confirmed his arrival by posting a picture of him with his two dogs Atom and Humber on his instagram page.

Although he is still a major doubt for the City’s game, I expect him to play the game since he is apparently salivating for football action on the sideline.
