Aaron Ramsey believes there is a chance he could be fit to face Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup semi-final in 10 days times, reports the Daily Mail.
The Wales midfielder has not featured for Arsenal since Boxing Day last year in a clash against West Ham as he continues to suffer from a niggling thigh injury.
Initially being ruled out for around three weeks, Ramsey continues to sit on the sidelines as the buildup of scar tissue around the injured muscles significantly slows down the healing process.
But Ramsey is set to return to full training at Arsenal's London Colney training centre later this week and could be fit to make the squad for the game at Wembley on April 12th.
Arsenal will play an equally important game against Everton this Saturday with the winner likely to be made favourite to seal fourth place in the Premier League and, therefore, a Champions League place.
However, the game at Goodison Park is likely to come too soon for Ramsey. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will be very cautious with Ramsey's reintroduction to the first team after seeing the 23-year-old suffer several setbacks recently.
If Ramsey reacts well to his first week of training, Wenger may be tempted to include him the squad to face Wigan providing a huge boost to the Gunners who have struggled in his absence.
When Ramsey was initially injured, Arsenal were top of the table thanks mainly to the contribution of the player in question. Ramsey scored eight goals in the league and remains by far and away their second top scorer behind Olivier Giroud.
Alongside the injured Jack Wilshere and Mesut Ozil, Ramsey has left a gaping hole in the Arsenal squad and will return to help Wenger's men secure a fourth place rather than the title they were expected to compete for back on December 26.
