Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky has admitted that he would prefer a move to Major League Soccer if he decides to leave the Gunners.

The 33-year-old has started in only six games in the league this season, with one assist to his name. The Czech international's contract runs out at the end of the season and is yet to be handed a new deal by Arsene Wenger.

However, failing to land a new deal before the end of the season would see him leave Arsenal for free in the summer. The midfielder has also not ruled out a possible return to his former club Sparta Prague.

"If the day comes and I leave Arsenal, then I will be surely considering a move to play on a different continent," Rosicky explained.

"If I should leave, however, then I would be tempted to play in the USA. Football has been on the rise there and I'm interested in trying a different style of life. By that, I'm not ruling out a return to Sparta Prague, though."

Rosicky has stressed on ending his career with the north London club. The former Borussia Dortmund midfielder remains uncertain over his future at the Emirates.

"I would like to carry on but there are a few question marks. If it was possible, I would love to end my career at Arsenal, which is something I have said many times before," the former Dortmund midfielder stressed.

"It's hard to leave a top club like Arsenal. It's a club where I have had everything I have ever been searching for in the football side of things," he said.

Meanwhile, Rosicky has set sight on the 2016 European championship with the Czech Republic. However, he is aware that lack of playing time could restrict his chances of making it to Euro2016 with the national side.

"I have always liked to play for my country and if you have something to offer, it's not easy to give it up. I wouldn't like to give up on either [Arsenal or the national team]. I would like to try for the Euro 2016," the midfielder concluded.

Rosicky joins Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna, who also has over six months left on his contract at the north London club and could leave the Emirates for free after the end of the season.
