The Czech Republic international has fallen out of favour in north London, and with his current deal set to expire in the summer, has been linked with an exit before the end of the month.
Despite this, Rosicky’s agent has stated that the playmaker will not leave The Gunners before the summer, and that a meeting with Arsene Wenger regarding a new deal happened recently.
“It was a good discussion, like it always is with Mr Wenger,” representative Pavel Paska told Czech news agency CTK, as covered in Sky Sports.
“We have outlined our ideas and Arsenal their ideas. We have exchanged some pieces of information and agreed on making the final decision on 15th February.
“Everything is wide open. Naturally, I have talked with Tomas and know his wishes, but until the next talks with Arsenal we will not reveal our cards.
“I would not like to speculate but people at Arsenal have hinted that they would be interested in Tomas carrying on there.
“But we will have to wait and see till the middle of February how things unfold,” he concluded.
