According to his agent, Tomas Rosicky has been contacted by clubs in the US and the United Arab Emirates, while former club Sparta Prague have also confirmed their interest in signing the midfielder.
The 35-year-old will celebrate a decade as an Arsenal player in 10 days time, but won’t be offered a new deal when his current contract ends in July.
Speaking about his client’s desire to continue his playing career, Pavel Paska told Czech press: “There are options to play in the USA and the United Arab Emirates, but his immediate concern is securing a call-up to the national team.
“He can still do something at the European Championship. Tom wants to play at football’s highest level for two more years.
“Of course, we think about it,” he continued when asked about a return to Sparta Prague, the club at which he launched his long and illustrious career.
“It still holds true that Tomas Rosicky is an interesting player for Sparta and that there’s an interest in his services.
“Representatives of the senior management team are also in close contact with the player’s manager Pavel Paska.”
So lots of options for Super Tom, a player who despite all his injuries has maintained his status as a terrace favourite. It’ll be sad to see him go, fingers crossed he gets a chance to say goodbye on his own terms on Sunday.
Cheers to @RYO_cleverfish for the heads up
