London Colney - Fit-again Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere
is not ready to feature against West Bromwich Albion on Thursday, manager
Arsene Wenger said on Wednesday.
Wilshere, 24, has not played for Arsenal yet this season
after fracturing his fibula in pre-season.
He has played three games for the club's under-21 side this
month, but Wenger said that the home game against West Brom had come too soon
for the England international.

"He has had no setbacks and is getting better. He will
be available after West Brom," Wenger told a press conference at Arsenal's
London Colney training base.
"In every game he was sharper. He has a good fitness
basis. He is available for selection."
Wilshere had established himself as a first-choice pick for
England manager Roy Hodgson prior to getting injured and Wenger believes that
there is still a strong possibility of him playing at Euro 2016.
"He has played three games already," said the
Frenchman, whose side are fourth in the Premier League. "There is still
two months before the Euros. He should be perfectly fit."
Wenger also revealed that Spanish midfielder Santi Cazorla
has returned to training following a knee injury that has kept him out of
action since November.
