Tomas Rosicky will be given a one-year contract extension at Arsenal if he meets the required amount of appearances this season, reports

The Czech midfielder's current deal at the Emirates expires at the end of the season and he is yet to be offered an extension by Arsene Wenger.

However, is reporting that a clause inserted in to Rosicky's current deal will trigger a one-year extension should he make 25 appearances for the Gunners this season.

Injury problems limited Rosicky to just 16 appearances for Arsenal last season and a similar situation could see him leave the club in the summer.

Having made 11 appearances for the club so far this season, the 33-year-old is well on course to meet that requirement before May but any injury problems, as well the likes of Lukas Podolski, Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamerlain returning from injury, could hamper his chances of reaching the landmark.

Since joining the club from Borussia Dortmund in 2006, Rosicky has been limited to 193 appearances for the club and spent 18 months on the sidelines with a string of recurring injuries between 2008 and 2010.

Rosicky does, however, have Wenger's favour on his side and has been praised by the manager in recent times.

After Rosicky signed a contract in 2012, Wenger said of the player: "I believe he is an exceptional player, a natural footballer who is technically top class.

"He plays the style of football we champion here and shares completely our philosophy. I have huge respect for him."

Rosicky is the fourth longest-serving player at the club behind Nicklas Bendtner, Abou Diaby and Walcott.
