Czech Republic international Tomas Rosicky could have played his last game for Arsenal. 

This has been reported by the Mirror, who claim that the 35-year-old is set to depart north London at the end of the season. 

Rosicky featured in his first game of the season for the club during Saturday's FA Cup victory over Championship outfit Burnley but picked up yet another long-term injury after damaging a thigh muscle.

It appears, then, that it's going to be a tricky period for the ageing midfielder as he goes in search of getting his career back on track. 

Rosicky has been a loyal servant to Arsenal - he has played 170 Premier League games for the club since 2006 - but it appears that it's time for him to move on. 


Gunners boss Arsene Wenger admitted in his press conference that Rosicky is 'devastated' by his latest setback. 

As per the Mirror, the Arsenal chief stated: "He's such a good player but his career has been disrupted by so many injuries. He's 35, it's difficult for him.

"He warmed up well, for 20 minutes. He's devastated. Unbelievable. He said, 'I stayed on because you'd used your substitutes and couldn't change anymore.'"

Change at Arsenal 

Perhaps, then, Arsenal fans really won't get to see Rosicky strut his stuff for the club again. 

In fact, the report claims that the duo of Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini are set to follow the veteran out the door.

The dynamic is clearly changing in north London - midfielder Mohamed Elneny arrived in January - so there may well be a new look to Arsenal's midfield next term. 

Arsenal fans: will you be sad to see Rosicky leave? Have your say below!
