With the best news for Arsenal fans since last month's transfer deadline day, the Gunners are set to welcome back Spanish star Santi Cazorla as soon as this Saturday.

To add icing to the cake, Theo Walcott is also in line for a possible return against the Canaries this weekend while Bacary Sagna isn't far behind. 

According to, Santi Cazorla will make his eagerly anticipated comeback for the north-London club this weekend after returning to full training. 

The Spanish play-maker has been dearly missed by the Arsenal contingent ever since spraining his ankle ligaments on national team duty last month. 

England international Theo Walcott also has a chance to return against Norwich after recovering well from surgery on his abdominal injury.

At this stage it does, however, seem next Tuesday's match against last season's Champions League finalists Dortmund is a more realistic return date. 

This will be welcome news to title-chasing manager Arsene Wenger whose squad has been stretched to its absolute limits with injuries.

This was outlined when Wenger was forced to start the undeniably talented yet hugely inexperienced 18 year-old Serge Gnabry in the Premier League as a result of all of Arsenal's senior wingers being unavailable.

Sagna is also in line for a return on against Dortmund after recovering well from the hamstring injury he picked in the Gunners' Champions league victory over big-spenders Napoli earlier this month.

He is believed to be in with a '60-40' chance for the eagerly anticipated clash at the Emirates. 

The prospect of seeing Cazorla team up with Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey for the first time will be mouth-watering for Arsenal fans.

Coupled with the return of Theo Walcott who is the perfect player to be getting on the end of those delectable Ozil assists; Arsenal fans may find they need to go and have a good lay down after Saturday's match.
