Aaron Ramsey admits he is relishing the prospect of teaming up with Jack Wilshere, and hopes they can forge a formidable partnership at the heart of the Arsenal midfield together.

The England international is on the verge of making his long-awaited first-team comeback, after almost 14 months on the sidelines with a series of recurring injury problems.

Wilshere came through 90 minutes for the Gunners' development squad on Monday, after being named by Arsene Wenger on the bench for the weekend defeat against Norwich City.

He won't feature in the Champions League against Schalke at the Emirates Stadium tomorrow evening, but may be considered for Arsenal's Premier League clash against Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.

Ramsey has also experienced a lengthy spell out of the game, following his horrific double leg break against Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium in 2010, and knows just what it takes to come through the rehabilitation process.

"He's been out for a long time and I've been through a similar sort of thing," the Wales international told talkSPORT. "I'm happy to see him back now playing again.

"There's nothing worse than being out for that period of time. We haven't really had a chance to play together. He went out on loan, I got injured, he got injured.

"I'm looking forward to that one day. He's a gifted player and one that any midfielder would like to play with, and I'm no different. Hopefully that can be a possibility soon."
