Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky has revealed that he expects his future at the Emirates to be sorted in the next few days, telling Czech news agency CTK that he wants to stay at the club next season and Arsene Wenger feels the same.
Rosicky is out of contract at end of this season, although negotiations over an extension to that deal have been underway for some considerable time.
The 33-year-old has been a vital component of Arsenal's surprise title challenge this season, featuring 27 times in all competitions, and is still viewed by Wenger as an important, experienced part of his plans moving forward.
While on Czech international duty this week Rosicky has shared that he expects fresh terms to be confirmed imminently, allowing both him and the Gunners to focus on a fight for silverware on three fronts.
He told CTK: "Arsene Wenger wants me to stay, he wants our co-operation to continue. I want to stay.
"Hopefully all is sorted out in the next few days. It would be great to play on at Arsenal for another few years."
The Gunners have a number of decisions to make on contract dilemmas before the close of the current campaign, with Wenger's future the most prominent on that agenda.
Wenger is yet to put pen to paper on a new deal himself, but getting Rosicky tied down to a contract that would seen him spend the rest of his playing career in North London would be a welcome boost for Gunners fans.
