The Czech international has been on the periphery of the first team for the majority of the campaign, making just five starts in the Premier League, but the 34-year-old has opted to take up the chance to make it a decade at the club.
He had previously stated that he would look into making the move away from the Emirates at the end of the current campaign after growing frustrated at the continued lack of first team opportunities.
But Wenger confirmed the deal in his annual Friday afternoon press conference.
“Yes, we have taken up the option (of a one-year contract extension),” boss Wenger tols a news conference this morning,” he said.
“Tomas Rosicky is not involved in the transfer market at all, he will be with us next season.”
