Arsenal star staying for now

Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky will not be leaving the Gunners in the January transfer window.


Sky Sports have reported that his agent had a meeting to clarify the Czech international’s future at Emirates Stadium.


Pavel Paska did confirm that nothing had been decided beyond the summer and that decision will be made by Wenger once the transfer window closes.


“It was a good discussion, like it always is with Mr Wenger,” he told Czech news agency CTK.


“We have outlined our ideas and Arsenal their ideas. We have exchanged some pieces of information and agreed on making the final decision on 15th February.


“Everything is wide open. Naturally, I have talked with Tomas and know his wishes, but until the next talks with Arsenal we will not reveal our cards.


The report claims that a host of European clubs are interested in offering a deal to Rosicky this summer when his current contract runs out.


It also says that teams such as Olympiakos, Galatasaray and Wolfsburg were willing to snap-up the former Borussia Dortmund man in the January transfer window – as well as fellow Barclays Premier League side Fulham.


Paska refused to be drawn on the subject of a transfer but did intimate that his client may yet be offered new terms at Arsenal.


“I would not like to speculate (on Rosicky's future) but people at Arsenal have hinted that they would be interested in Tomas carrying on there,” he added.


“But we will have to wait and see till the middle of February how things unfold.”


Many supporters have doubted whether there would be another deal for the 31-year-old, who has fallen down the pecking order at the North London club.


Rosicky has been dogged by injury for much of his time at the Gunners and he has seen his starting place being taken by players such as Jack Wilshere, Aaron Ramsey and summer arrival Mikel Arteta.


A talented playmaker nicknamed ‘Little Mozart’ during his time in the Bundesliga, Rosicky may feel he has unfinished business at Emirates Stadium and that he has yet to show his full potential.
