Bayern Munich are reportedly considering a move for Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky.

According to the London Evening Standard, Pep Guardiola's side are plotting a free transfer deal for the 33-year-old Czech Republic international.

Rosicky's current Arsenal deal expires at the end of the current campaign, although Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is thought to be extremely keen to keep him at the Emirates Stadium.

Still, while Rosicky is believed to be settled and happy at Arsenal, interest from a top European club like Bayern Munich could be difficult to turn down.

The Czech star is often saved for the big games by Wenger, he regularly features in Champions League ties while he's made just seven starts in the Premier League.

Arsenal remain confident he will put pen to paper on a new deal, while reports also claim Wenger himself, plus possibly Per Mertesacker and Bacary Sagna, could announce new Gunners contracts.

It is unclear whether Bayern's interest stems from Guardiola or someone else at the boardroom level - the Evening Standard notes that Bayern have been admirers of Rosicky dating back to his days at Sparta Prague.

He moved to Borussia Dortmund in 2001 for €14.5m, but Bayern Munich were also thought to be contenders for his signature then.
