Borussia Dortmund's teenage sensation, Mario Gotze, is close to returning to training after injury.
The 19-year-old Germany international has been out since January as a result of a problem with a pubic bone.
But Gotze, who has been compared to Barcelona's Lionel Messi and has been linked with a move to Arsenal, hopes to be back in action within a fortnight.
He told BVB Online: "I am very happy things are on the up and my injury is subsiding.
"I am looking forward to returning to training. I may be back in training in as little as two weeks from now."
Gotze's return would be a timely boost for Jurgen Klopp's Dortmund as they enter the final phase of the season aiming to hold off Bayern Munich and Borussia Monchengladbach in the defence of their Bundesliga title.
