Arsenal prepare to offer Rosicky a new deal to fend off MLS interest
Arsenal are preparing to offer Czech midfielder Tomas Rosicky a new contract in an effort to stave off interest from the MLS, according to The Metro.
Rosicky has been in fine form for the Premier League leaders this season, and despite Arsenal’s policy of caution before offering any player over the age of 30 a new deal it is believed that the 33-year-old remains in high standing at the club, and with clubs based in American reportedly interested in acquiring the player’s services the Gunners want to extend his current deal, which expires at the end of the season.
Speaking at a press conference prior to Monday evening’s trip to Aston Villa, manager Arsene Wenger confirmed that the north Londoners are preparing a new deal for the man they signed from Borussia Dortmund in 2006.
The Frenchman said: “He [Rosicky] will stay here. He is a marvellous player – an Arsenal player.”
Rosicky’s desire has been to stay with Arsenal, the Metro continues, and so despite “several clubs” wanting to take him over to the States it would now appear likely that he will continue his tenure as an Arsenal player for the forseeable future.
