Tomas Rosicky could potentially be set for an Arsenal exit this summer, with his former club Sparta Prague insisting they would love to take him back, according to talkSPORT
The Czech international has been a fantastic servant at Arsenal, and is one of the longest serving stars on the team. At 34-years-old he is into the twilight of his career however, and a move away from the Emirates is not out of the question.
He didn’t feature much last season, despite a relatively injury free campaign. Which is why it surprised many that Arsene Wenger took up the option to extend his contract by a year (via talkSPORT).
The report suggests a move this summer could still happen however, and Sparta Prague’s majority shareholder claims his side would be thrilled to see Rosicky back in the Czech capital.
“I’d love him to come and for it to happen soon,” David Kretisnky said, as quoted by talkSPORT.

“But I don’t want to put uncomfortable pressure on Tomas. It’s up to him, I understand that leaving Arsenal isn’t easy.”
It would be a shame to see him leave, but it’s hugely unfair to leave a player of his quality rotting on the bench – if he even makes the matchday squad at all.
