Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira is back in training with the Uruguayan international sharing footage of himself doing shuttle runs in the park.
The 24-year-old has been out of action since February after sustaining an ankle injury in the win over Portsmouth in the fifth round of the FA Cup.
Fans on Twitter are happy to see Torreira return to fitness and are hopeful of seeing the midfielder play when the Premier League season resumes:

The only real benefit to this enforced break in football has been that it allows injured players time to recover their fitness.
Torreira was expected to miss most of the rest of the season due to the seriousness of his injury, but he could now be available if fixtures are played from next month.
Of course, he will need full contact training in order to get back to match fitness so it could still be a while before we see him in action.
