Tomas Rosicky has been plagued with injuries for much of his Arsenal career but will go into pre-season training free from injury.
The news will be a big boost for Arsenal as his importance to the squad can't be understated.
The Czech International made just 16 appearances last season, but was more than impressive for many of them. He combined well with Mikel Arteta, Aaron Ramsey and Santi Cazorla as Arsenal went on a strong run of form in the latter stages of the campaign.
Rosicky’s speed on the turn injects pace into Arsenal attack that can sometimes become slow and predictable. He also possesses an eye for a pass as well as being quick to close down.
His experience and passion in the last two seasons has been very helpful in seeing Arsenal over the line in the race for Champions League football.
Rosicky also spoke about how he expects to stay at Arsenal for at least another season after speaking with Arsene Wenger.
Rosicky told fotbal.idnes.cz: "After the season I spoke with the coach and Arsenal want me to stay. Of course, you never know what can happen, but I should be staying. A return to Sparta Prague? No, not yet.
“I have one year left on my contract and know nothing about me not staying. The coach has told me he counts on me.”
Arsenal fans will be hoping that should the creative midfielder successfully complete the pre-season tour and be fully fit to start when the new campaign gets underway, that he can replicate the performances he gave towards the end of the 2011/12 and 2012/13 seasons.
