And, while he has written an open letter to Chelsea fans to explain his departure, Cech has hinted that he did not think twice about moving to the Gunners.
He told Arsenal’s official website: “I’m really excited about joining Arsenal Football Club and can’t wait to join up for pre-season.
“I have the same commitment to football, the same motivation and the same hunger for success as I had at the beginning of my career, and I love the challenges brought by the top quality players you face while playing in the Premier League.
“When Arsène Wenger spoke to me about his ambitions for this club, and how he saw me as part of this team, the decision was clear.”
Cech, who lost his place to Thibaut Courtois at Chelsea last season, made over 490 appearances and lifted 13 major trophies during his 11 years at Stamford Bridge.
