Tomas Rosicky is aiming to score more goals this season, to improve his chances of winning a bet with Cesc Fabregas and Alexander Hleb.
The Arsenal midfielder netted six times last season and is looking to better that tally this term.
Rosicky is determined to improve in front of goal in order to finish ahead of Fabregas and Hleb, who scored the winner against Fulham on Sunday.
"The three of us, we are preparing a bet - the one who scores more goals will win," Rosicky told CTK.
"We still don't know what the prize will be but that decision will be made soon."
Rosicky is also targeting winning some silverware at Emirates Stadium this season, but accepts it will be tough for The Gunners.
"I wish to win at least one trophy, of course though, we want to be fighting for the title," the Czech Republic international said.
"Indeed, Manchester United who have strengthened, Liverpool who have captured a lot of players and Chelsea who will be hungry for success, these teams have the same goal for sure."
Meanwhile, Rosicky is backing Arsenal's strikers to step up their game following Thierry Henry's departure.
Robin van Persie, Emmanuel Adebayor and Eduardo da Silva are all vying to start for Arsene Wenger's side this season.
"The fact that Thierry left the club will mean that our strikers have a chance to compete to become the team's top striker," Rosicky told Sport.
"You can see that Van Persie wants to take on the responsibility, he has had a great pre-season and scored goals.
"I expect the same from Adebayor, he has all the attributes that a striker must have."
