Abou Diaby could play a part in Arsenal's final games of the season, according to Arsene Wenger.
The France international has not pulled on a Gunners shirt since he started the 2-0 win at Swansea City on March 16, 2013. But Diaby may feature for the under-21s against Chelsea at Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night.
"He is back in full training now and available to play," Wenger told Arsenal Player. "He might play a part of the game for the under-21s.
"Yes of course [he could play for the first team this season], it depends how well he comes out of the game. He hasn't played for a year but physically he is ready to play, completely. It is now just decision-making, getting used to challenges again. He needs a game.
"Everybody [counted him out] but he is fit and ready."
