Arsenal look to have been handed a big boost to sign Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech in the summer transfer window due to the player’s desire to remain in London, according to CaughtOffside.
The Czech Republic international has found himself on the bench at Stamford Bridge in this frustrating season, with Belgian youngster Thibaut Courtois taking his place as number one in Jose Mourinho’s starting lineup.
Still, Cech has had a long and successful career with the Blues, showing himself to be one of the best goalkeepers in Europe, and there’s no doubt he could do a job for the Gunners.
David Ospina has played well for Arsene Wenger’s side this season, though there seemingly remain some doubts as to whether he can truly become the established number one for the club, despite displacing the out-of-form Wojciech Szczesny this term.
Cech has been on Arsenal’s radar before and remains a priority target for the north London club.
