Tomas Rosicky joined Dortmund in 2001 and won the Bundesliga in his debut season. However, he went trophy-less with the club for the next four seasons and decided to jump to the Premier League with the Gunners in the summer of 2006. After confirming his move to the Gunners he went on to seriously impress in the World Cup while playing for the Czech Republic .
The 32-year-old has had a stop-start career at Arsenal and may well be nearing the exit come the end of the season. After having a strong start to his Gunners careers, he suffered a loss of form mainly due to the hamstring injury in the 2007-08 season, which kept him out for 18 months.
He came to back into some kind of form during the second half of last season and helped the Gunners qualify for the Champions League. His purple patch also enabled him to sign an extension to his contract for a further two years. However, he picked up an Achilles injury at Euro 2012 and only made his return to the side in December.
He has only made a handful of Premier League appearances this term and according to Metro, he has grown disillusioned with life at Arsenal and could be on his way out in the summer. He said, “Naturally, I would like to play more often, that’s for sure. It’s the manager’s team and I fully respect his decisions. I cannot do anything else other than train properly and wait for a chance.”
One team willing to offer him more playing time is none other than his old club, Borussia Dortmund, who are willing to offer him a pay-as-you-play deal in the summer, according to reports in Germany. Dortmund have sounded out the player ahead of making their move and believe the midfielder could be huge for commercial opportunities.
Gunners manager, Arsene Wenger, has a huge transfer kitty at his disposal for the summer, and has eyed a host of talented stars like Isco, Wanyama and others to rejuvenate his squad. At 32 years of age, Rosicky’s best years are behind him and Wenger is keen to offload the midfielder to make space for the players he is keen to recruit in the summer.
