Rosicky’s current contract is set to expire this coming summer and the Czech Republic international has recently been linked with fellow Premier League side Fulham as well as German side Wolfsburg.
Rosickys past few seasons have been plagued with injuries restricting the 31-year-old to only five league appearances this season. However his agent Pavel Paska has refused to rule out the possibility the midfielder signing a new deal to stay at the Emirates.
Paska told reporters:
Fulham is just press speculation, I am now going to have a meeting with Arsene Wenger but won’t comment on anything before that. I don’t like to give any prognosis to the press.
I react on facts and that means I will express myself only when we know the result of this meeting.
Rosicky joined the Gunners back in 2006 from Borussia Dortmund and has been a fantastic squad player for the past few years amidst his injuries. But Wenger’s policy for over 30’s will surely be a big stumbling block if Rosicky is keen to gain a long contract, as the Arsenal manager only tends to offer short term one year contracts for this sort of age.

It would be a shame to loose the Czech international as he provides excellent cover in midfield and has a lot of experience at the top level. He is however not a first team regular starter so it would be completely understandable if he decided to leave, and if he did that could open the door for a fresh talented playmaker such as Mario Gotze to be bought. Maybe Dortmund could be interested in their former player Rosicky + cash for Gotze?
