The north Londoners are keen to keep hold of Rosicky.
Seemingly from nowhere Bayern Munich have taken up interest in Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky and the Gunners want to try and stop a deal from happening, according to the Mirror.
The 33-year-old’s current contract expires in the summer and Bayern have been looking to convince the Czech Republic international to return to Germany.
Rosicky arrived at the Emirates Stadium from Borussia Dortmund in 2006 for £7m and has since gone onto make 203 appearances for the team in all competitions, including 21 this term.
Club record signing Mesut Ozil was moved to state that the attacking midfielder was one of the best in his position in the entire Premier League.
“In my opinion Tomas belongs to the best midfielders in the Premier League,” Ozil told the club’s website.
“When you see how much he gives for the team and how he enjoys being on the ball it makes us happy to have a player like that in our ranks.”
The north London side are desperate to keep hold of Rosicky as a result and are in talks over a one-year extension to the veteran’s deal – something that manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed will happen.
“Tomas Rosicky will stay here at the end of the season,” Wenger told the club’s website.
“He is certainly a typical Arsenal player in the way that he is mobile, technically sound and team orientates.”
