Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has told Tomas Rosicky he wants him to stay.

After Rosicky, 32, scored both goals in the 2-1 win at West Brom to lift the Gunners into fourth spot, Wenger said he hoped the midfielder would stay put.

The Arsenal boss said: “I thought he was fantastic — he’s not a player I want to lose. I rate him very highly.

“He has one year left on his contract but I hope he stays and finishes his career with us here.

“He’s had a difficult season and been injured.

“But he always seems to come in and gives us a lift at the end of the season. He’s a quality player.”
