The Gunners boss will have to decide on the future of both players, who have been reduced to bit-part roles at the Emirates Stadium this season due to the emergence of young players like Francis Coquelin providing more competition in the middle of the park.

Rosicky, 34, has not played a game for Arsenal since March, while Flamini has also barely featured despite injuries to the likes of Mikel Arteta and Jack Wilshere.

According to the Daily Mirror, it may be that Arteta is another player whose future is in doubt, though the club are expected to announce that he has signed a one-year extension to his contract in north London.

Rosicky is being linked with a move to his old club Sparta Prague at the end of this season, with the Czech Republic playmaker set to be available on a free.
