The 35-year-old midfielder has been training with Arsenal in recent weeks in an attempt to overcome a thigh injury he picked up playing for the Czech Republic at Euro 2016.

He’s due to be confirmed as a Sparta player at a press conference this afternoon. Rosický spent 10 years with the Gunners after a move from Borussia Dortmund in 2006.

Although our Little Mozart still showed glimmers of the genius he always was, towards the end of his Arsenal career he was injured more and more, leaving him with hardly any time on the pitch.
