Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky has admitted that he hasn't thought about his own future yet, but is keen to impress his manager Arsene Wenger so that he can be offered a contract extension.
The Czech international is in his final year of his current contract at the North London club, but the 32-year-old is desperate to stay on at the Emirates Stadium and he is eager to impress on the pitch so that he can retire at the club.
Rosicky, who signed for Arsenal from German outfit Borussia Dortmund, has had numerous injury problems since joining the English side, but over the last couple of seasons has been a key member of the squad.
He's an important part of Wenger's midfield, alongside Mikel Arteta, Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey.
The midfield maestro has come good during the final stages of the campaigns and believes the future is bright for him, as long as he can stay fit.
"I'm trying to play every game like it's going to be my last. Everyone can see that and I'll continue to play like that," Rosicky told Sky Sports.
"This is my last season. It's not in the back of my mind that I'm playing for a new deal. I'm just trying to give my best for my team and my team-mates.
"I'm enjoying playing football again and we will see how it goes. But I'm not in a rush. I've said many times already that I would love to finish my career at Arsenal.
"The big part is the experience I have. I've been through happy times, bad times and everything. I'm 32 years old so I have a lot of stuff behind me already. All these tough games are the most interesting ones. You want to play in them and I'm no different in that.
"If you look at the last two seasons and what I was able to produce I think I played a big part in us coming back for a top four finish. Obviously for me the challenge is to make the pre-season which will help me for the whole season and contribute straight from the first game."
