Fiorentina winger Martin Jorgensen is hopeful he will be back in action before the end of September.
The Denmark international has been plagued by a thigh injury since the end of last season.
However, Jorgensen, who joined Fiorentina in 2004, expects to be back in training this week.
"It's going forward," Jorgensen told BT. "I am planning to train with the squad in a few days.
"But it will probably take a couple of weeks before I am back to match fitness."
Jorgensen has made 63 appearances for Denmark and has scored 11 goals in that time.
