Another transfer window, another Arsenal midfielder being linked with a move away from the club, and again it’s Tomas Rosicky.
It’s believed Greek champions Olympiakos are preparing an offer for the Czech international during the January transfer window.
In my opinion, it will be a strange decision for Arsene Wenger to let the 31-year-old leave, as it will leave us short of options in midfield, at least until Jack Wilshere and Abou Diaby are back fit. I for one would be very surprised to see Rosicky go in January, but think he will be more than likely leave during the summer.
Rosicky’s Arsenal career has been plagued by injuries since his arrival back in 2006, where he missed almost 18 months due to a hamstring tendon injury. Despite his technical ability, Rosicky is considered a bit-part player at the club after falling behind the likes of Song, Arteta, Ramsey and Wilshere in the pecking order.
Olympiakos will face stern competition from Wolfsburg for his signature though, as the German outfit have already expressed an interest in the ageing midfielder in recent weeks.
