The Frenchman corroborated the defender will be one of three players possibly back for the Gunners against Crystal Palace,
but ruled Kieran Gibbs out of the clash at the Emirates.
Shkodran Mustafi has returned to Arsenal training and is in line to make his first-team comeback against Crystal Palace on Sunday.
The Germany defender has not played for three weeks due to a hamstring injury sustained in the 3-1 victoriously triumph against Stoke City earlier this month.
But manager Arsene Wenger has attested Mustafi is an option to face Palace, with Danny Welbeck and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain withal gunning to be fit.
Welbeck has not played in a minute of action this season but returned to full training after recuperating from a long-term knee injury on Wednesday, while Oxlade-Chamberlain (hamstring) will face a tardy fitness test after missing Monday’s 1-0 win over West Brom.
However, defender Kieran Gibbs has been ruled out of the match at the Emirates Stadium due to what Wenger hopes is a minor knee quandary.
The West Brom victory was Arsenal’s first in three Premier League matches and left them fourth in the table.
