Tomas Rosicky has returned to training with his Arsenal team mates, but there is no wotd of when he will be ready to play again. If the Italian side Roma have their way, he may never play again in an Arsenal shirt as they are hoping that the Gunners accept an offer of around £5 million for the Czech international in January.
I know he is 32-years old and Arsenal do have alot of midfielders, but why would we sell Rosicky? He brings something different to the party and still has much to offer the Gunners. The money is neither here nor there, as Arsene Wenger is thought to have around £50 million burning a hole in his pocket.
Rosicky was great for us last season, and will be again once he has recovered fully. You could see how much his experience, vision and skill were missed by the Czech Republic after he was injured in their second match of Euro 2012. If, as reported, Andrey Arshavin is moving on in January, then Rosicky will be needed as an invaluable squad member for Arsenal. He can take the pressure off Cazorla and Wilshere, who will need a rest sometimes.
With his quality, Rosicky offers Wenger the option to rotate his players without worrying about weakening the side. I fully expect Wenger to tell the Italian club, `Arrivederci Roma`.
