Arsenal’s Tomas Rosicky tempted by Sparta Prague return - report

Rosicky

The ageing Czech midfielder could well be set for a return to his homeland and ex-employers this summer.

With Arsenal looking like a team capable of putting forward a prolonged Premier League title bid next season, there will be some subtle changes in Arsene Wenger’s squad this summer to prepare the Gunners for 2015-16.

Although a new face or two is expected to arrive at the Emirates Stadium, a number of current players will surely leave the North London club also.

Tomas Rosicky is expected to be included in that list of departing stars, with the veteran struggling to get time on the pitch for the English side.

The Czech midfielder has only started five Premier League games this season and is firmly behind the likes of Santi Cazorla, Francis Coquelin and Aaron Ramsey in Wenger’s thinking.

As such, bundesligapremier.it has stated that Rosicky’s nine-year tenure at Arsenal will come to an end this summer, with the 34-year-old ready to resign for former club Sparta Prague.

The versatile midfielder came through the youth ranks with the Czech side and featured in their first team for three seasons before signing for Borussia Dortmund in 2001.

The report instigates that Sparta have already contacted Rosicky over a potential return, which the midfielder is keen on.
