Arsene Wenger feels that when Jack Wilshere is up and running again it will be like a new signing for Arsenal, but will not rush the England midfielder back into action.

Wilshere, 20, has not kicked a ball in anger for the Gunners in more than a year, spending the whole of last season sidelined by a niggling ankle problem which also ruled him out of contention for Euro 2012 and the Olympics.

Wenger feels Wilshere is making good progress towards a return by the end of the new year, which the manager revealed was one of the reasons why he cooled on a move for Turkey international Nuri Sahin from Real Madrid. The Arsenal manager said: "October will be an important month for Jack. I will promise you that I will be careful, but Jack works very hard."
