Tomas Rosicky has not been used a lot at Arsenal this season. In fact he’s only made two sub appearances in the Premier League which suggests if any side wants to sign him this summer, they can do just that.
That side should be Everton because Rosicky is tailor made for the Toffees and would help the team develop in a very positive way.
Everton’s midfield has been missing a little bit of quality and authority ever since the day Mikel Arteta left the club to, ironically, go and join Arsenal.
Everton do have some very passionate players in the middle of their team but there can be little doubt that Rosicky is the sort of player who has the ability to nudge them up another level.
He shouldn’t damage the wage structure of the club too much if they choose to go after him and if he did, it would be worth it because he can bring plenty of quality to the table.
He’s a ball player in the simplest sense. He’s the sort of midfielder who likes to get on the ball, pass and receive it constantly and thread the eye of a needle as forward players go back and forth making runs.
He’s also get a lot of protection at Everton from the other midfielder players and from the manager. This is important because Rosicky is not the sort of player who is ever going to bully someone off of the ball.
He’ll be very hungry and determined to play regular first team football which is something Everton can offer him a lot more of, than Arsenal are currently doing.
Now of course the big issue is staying fit. The reason he has not played much for Arsenal this season is his injuries, but for Everton he may just be worth taking a chance on, even if they offer a type of pay-as-you-play deal. The appeal of playing for a top Premier League side, yet not a rival for Arsenal, where he has been since 2006 may just tempt him regardless.
If Everton manage to secure Champions League or Europa League football for next season then they will have extra funds and naturally a much better chance of pulling off this sort of transfer.
It’s unlikely that Rosicky will be at Arsenal next season considering his role at the Emirates this season, which suggests he hasn’t really got a big future under Arsene Wenger.
Everton are a side that have always had to watch their spending, now even more than ever before. Rosicky is 32-years-old and to be frank, Everton could do much worse once May comes and goes.
Everton fans, good potential transfer?
