There hasn’t really been any speculation linking Tomas Rosicky with an exit this summer but that hasn’t stopped his agent publicly stating that the Czech international will definitely be an Arsenal player next season.
The 32-year-old signed a short-term contract extension in March 2012 – a reward for demonstrating his best form since arriving in London in 2006 – only for a troublesome plantaris tendon problem, exacerbated at the European Championships, to again force him under the surgeon’s knife.
Despite being side-lined for the first half of the season, the midfielder has again forced his way back into Arsene Wenger’s first XI with his recent match-winning brace against West Brom a fitting demonstration of his ability to dictate games.
Confident that his client still has what it takes to perform at the required level, agent Pavel Paska, head of the International Sport Management, told Aktuálně.cz, “Rosicky will remain at Arsenal, it is one hundred per cent [certain].”
The report claims that the likes of Wolfsburg, Galatasaray (seemingly linked with everyone?) Olympiakos and AS Roma had previously shown an interest in signing Rosicky.
