Tomas Rosicky: Working his way back to full fitness and is focused on Arsenal

Speculation has suggested that the Serie A outfit have turned their attention to the experienced playmaker ahead of the January transfer window.

It was claimed that Arsenal could be open to offers with Arsene Wenger currently well-stocked for creativity in the middle of the park - with Santi Cazorla, Mikel Arteta, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere competing for starting berths.

Rosicky has been unable to challenge for a place in Wenger's thoughts so far this season, with an Achilles injury picked up at Euro 2012 keeping him on the sidelines.

The 32-year-old is, however, back in training and his representative insists his full focus is locked on returning to the Arsenal fold, with there no approach received from Italy.

Pavel Paska told gazzettagiallorossa.it: "Are Roma interested in Tomas? No, there is absolutely no truth in that.

"The player is only thinking about getting back out on the field and is training hard every day to make sure he recovers as soon as possible. He could be back in January.

"There has never been anything with Roma. I have never had any contact with the club."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
