The 34-year-old has made just 15 Premier League appearances this term, with his last start coming against Everton back in March.
With speculation growing of an off-season exit, Rosicky told the London Evening Standard that it had been a “difficult” season for him.
“I can’t tell you anything at the moment. When the season finishes, we’ll see if I will continue for another season,” Rosicky is quoted as saying by Daily Star.
“I would rather not talk about it at the moment. Being on the bench is difficult – every player wants to be involved.
“When you’re not getting the games you want or if you are not even part of it, it’s difficult for every player.”
Rosicky has been linked with a return to the Czech Republic with Sparta Prague, and supporters of the club have even begun attempts to raise money to bring the former player back to the club.
“We are ready to do the maximum to inspire Sparta fans to raise the sum as high as it can be,” a supporters statement read.
“We will actively and fully support also some related activities of the club, for example the sale of Tomas’s shirt, and special souvenirs.”
Rosicky has played 169 Premier League games for the Gunners since joining from Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund in 2006.
