LONDON, April 03, 2014 (AFP) - Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey could make his first appearance since December in Sunday's English Premiership game at Champions League qualification rivals Everton, manager Arsene Wenger revealed on Thursday.

"Aaron and Nacho Monreal are back training with the squad, so that is good news," Wenger told the Arsenal website. "Hopefully they will be available for Sunday."

Welsh midfielder Ramsey made a superb start to the season, scoring 13 goals in the first half of the campaign, but he has not featured since suffering a thigh strain at West Ham United on December 26.

The 23-year-old subsequently suffered a couple of setbacks, but he is now in line for a comeback at Goodison Park, where Arsenal will look to preserve their four-point advantage over Everton in the race for fourth place.

Centre-back Laurent Koscielny (calf) could return for next weekend's FA Cup semi-final against Wigan Athletic, but Wenger said that the game at Wembley Stadium would come too soon for playmaker Mesut Ozil (hamstring).

"The FA Cup will be too soon for him, but he will hopefully be back soon after that," said the Frenchman.

Wenger also revealed that French midfielder Abou Diaby has returned to training after more than a year out with a serious knee injury.
