Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus has returned to training after recovering from a broken foot.
Gabriel, who turned 20 on Monday, took part in light training just seven weeks after fracturing a metatarsal bone in his right foot.
The Brazil international has been working in the gym in a bid to keep up his fitness levels and it is hoped he can return to full training soon.
City boss Pep Guardiola hopes the £27 million signing from Palmeiras can play before the end of the season and he could be in contention for a place in the FA Cup final if City can get past Arsenal in the semifinals.
Gabriel, who completed his move to the Etihad in January, has been out of action since picking up the injury early in the 2-0 victory at Bournemouth on Feb. 13.
It brought an end to his excellent start in England that saw him score three times in his first four games, including a last-minute winner in the victory over Swansea City.
His form saw Sergio Aguero relegated to the bench but the Argentina international has started all nine games since Gabriel’s injury, scoring eight goals in that time.
