Yossi Benayoun is targeting Chelsea's Barclays Premier League game at Stoke next month for his long-awaited return from injury.
Midfielder Benayoun, who suffered a torn Achilles during his second start for the club in September, has already resumed light training.
The 30-year-old hopes to be match fit by the end of the month, meaning he could make his comeback in the April 2 clash at the Britannia Stadium.
He told the Jewish Chronicle: "I'm feeling really good and progressing well.
"I hope to return to full training with Chelsea within a week or two. My hope is to be match fit towards the end of the month."
