Arsenal 'rebuff' Everton enquiry for Tomas Rosicky


Written by Chris Wheatley

Arsenal have told Everton that Tomas Rosicky will not be leaving the club in the January transfer window – just days after the Toffees made tentative enquiries for the Czech Republic midfielder.

The 32-year-old’s time in north London has been severely disrupted by injury and he has only played once this season following further problems.

Everton manager David Moyes is in the market for a creative midfielder after missing out on the signing of Schalke ace Lewis Holtby who signed a pre-contract with Tottenham last week.

Keen to keep

However, Gunners boss Arsene Wenger still sees Rosicky as a part of his plans and is prepared to give the former Borussia Dortmund man more playing time in coming games as Arsenal face a traditionally congested January fixture list.

Furthermore, Wenger considers the Czech a more ‘reliable’ alternative to Aaron Ramsey, but has opted to play the Welshman on the flanks in recent games to aid his development into a central midfielder.

Rosicky’s current contract expires in June 2014 and several clubs outside England have already shown interest, including Russian giants Spartak Moscow who made a formal offer last January.

It’s not a coincidence, Wenger wants Rosicky to become a coach at Arsenal once he retires.

doesnt make sense, you dont keep a player that was your best. you keep a player that hasnt featured at all. Although I like Rosicky despite not seeing him at his very best at Arsenal at 32 you would cash in what you can right ?

When ever he plays he’ll be the best player out there. I don’t bknow why Wenger keeps him out of the first team. He shouldn’t be sold. He should retire at Arsenal as a legend. 3-4 years still in front of him.
