Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas believes the return to action of midfielder Tomas Rosicky will provide a major lift to the Gunners.
The Czech Republic international has not featured for Arsene Wenger's men for over 18 months after worrying hamstring injuries which then led to problems with his knee tendons.
Rosicky is finally on course for a return to the first-team after surgery to cure the problem and captain Fabregas is keen to see him back in action.
The talented playmaker has been a matchwinner for the club in the past, but his absence since January 2008 has robbed Arsene Wenger of one of his most mercurial talents.
"Tomas is unbelievable and when we see that he will be back next season, he will be strong and hopefully he can help us improve a lot," Fabregas told the club's official website.
"He's a guy with a lot of experience, he has won things, he knows how to compete, he's very humble and he works for the team.
"Technically he is one of the best in the world and physically I am sure he will be really strong because he's been working really hard.
"I'm happy because soon he is going to be back and I can't wait to see him playing again."
