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."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
