Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is targeting making the Red devils trip to Arsenal on December 2 to make his comeback from injury.
Zlatan has not played since suffering knee ligament damage in the Europa League victory over Anderlecht in April.
Despite inevitably missing a big chunk of this season, Jose Mourinho decided to give Ibrahimovic another one-year deal at Old Trafford.
And the 36-year-old has recovered quicker than some expected, and looks likely to make his return before Christmas and be ready for the knockout stages of the Champions League.
Ibrahimovic hit 28 goals in his debut season with United, but the Red Devils have operated with a sole striker so far this term in Romelu Lukaku.
Lukaku has started life at Old Trafford in blistering form, hitting 10 goals in nine games in all competitions.
Speaking recently, Ibrahimovic said: “I have trained every day since I had my knee operated on, there is no vacation.

NAIJ.com reported earlier that Ibrahimovic will be out for the rest of the season following serious kneel injury, but the striker has however defiled the odds and is targeting an early comeback against Arsenal in the Emirate on Saturday, December 2, 2017.
