The 33-year-old is due to become a free agent at the end of the season, but has highlighted how important he still is to the club by putting in some impressive displays this season and even managed to get himself on the scoresheet in Saturday’s victory over struggling Sunderland.
He has been with the club since arriving from Borussia Dortmund in 2006, and manager Arsene Wenger spoke of his delight at being able to keep the Czech midfielder on board for a little longer.
“Tomas Rosicky will stay,” said Wenger.
“We have an agreement with him and it will come out soon. I am absolutely adamant he has to stay at the club.”
Rosicky’s future had been in question recently as a series of injury problems had prevented him from keeping a regular spot in the side, but so far this season he has managed to make 20 appearances, scoring three goals in the process.
“He is maybe one of the players who plays the game of give and move, is a great accelerator of the game,” continued Wenger.
“When the ball comes to him it is ‘boof’. It is second gear now and that is something I admire in him.
“He makes always things happen, not with individual dribbling but with individual acceleration of his passing and of his runs.”
