Rosicky’s 10 years with the Gunners is coming to an end and he will be looking for a new club come the summer.

The 35-year-old has not been offered fresh terms and boss Arsene Wenger confirmed at his press conference on Friday that he will be missed around the club.

Wenger said: “Tomas Rosicky has been with us for 10 years and I think everybody loves him.”

Rosicky will be part of the Czech Republic’s squad for Euro 2016 this summer and his agent Pavel Paska says he must concentrate on the tournament before deciding his next move, with interest from old club Sparta and from MLS sides in the US.

“Now the most important thing is the Euros,” Paska told reporters in the Czech Republic. “Only afterwards can we think about what will happen next. There could be a possible return to Sparta or a move to America to consider.”

Meanwhile, Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini are set to be released by Arsenal next month as well with their contracts also set to expire and Wenger has paid tribute to the duo’s influence at the Emirates.

He added: “I believe that Mikel Arteta is the captain of the club and has been a great leader. All of these players will have to decide if they go on in their careers as a football player or a coach.

“Mathieu Flamini has been an extremely stronger leader on the pitch and off the pitch. We lose three big personalities.”
