Swansea City striker Bafetimbi Gomis is in line to return from injury in time to face Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on 11 May.

Gomis has been out for a month with a hamstring injury he suffered in the 1-1 draw against Everton but has resumed training ahead of the trip to the Champions League chasing Gunners.

The France international has scored just five Premier League goals this season but with three of them coming in the wins over Aston Villa and Hull City just prior to his absence, Arsenal could become the latest victim of the 29-year-old's recent improvement.

"Bafe is back in training and we will have to assess if he is ready to start, but it will be good to have him back as we are getting short on bodies," manager Garry Monk said.

"We have had a few injuries. But that comes back to adding to the squad.

"If we'd had a few injuries to some of our consistent performers we could have been in a very different situation, and that's why we must add quality and depth to the squad this summer while not losing anything."

The former Lyon forward was linked with a move to Arsenal during the January transfer window but could now dent the north London club's hopes of securing a top four spot before the sharp end of the campaign.

Arsenal require just a point from their final four league games to guarantee a 17<sup>th straight season in the Champions League, though they could have already achieved qualification if Liverpool fail to beat champions Chelsea 24 hours prior to the game.

Meanwhile, Swansea are enjoying a record-breaking season in the Premier League in Monk's first full campaign in charge having already eclipsed the club's highest ever top flight points total while they need just a point to secure a top half finish.
