Greek side Olympiakos have targeted Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky as their January transfer target, according to The
Rosicky has been used in a backup role at the Emirates Stadium and with the returns of Jack Wilshere and Abou Diaby next month, the Czech midfielder could be frozen out at Arsenal. Arsene Wenger is eager to keep the 31 year old at the club until the summer, despite his reluctance to use Rosicky on a regular basis. Rosicky joined the Gunners from German side Borussia Dortmund in 2006, but has been dogged by injuries.
Olympiakos are facing competition from Wolfsburg over Rosicky’s signature and both are expected to make a formal offer to Arsenal chiefs. Wolfsburg boss Felix Magath has publicly stated his affection for the Czech midfielder, who is keen to keep his place in the Euro 2012 squad.
Magath said: ‘Tomas is a good player, he is fit no question about it. Only a few years ago, every top club was after him’. Wenger could sell the midfielder in January if he can either find a replacement or see Diaby and Wilshere return earlier than expected.
