The Czech Republic international is also being linked with Liverpool and AS Roma, while the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid have shown an interest in the past.
Still, Arsenal are eyeing Cech as the ideal replacement for Wojciech Szczesny and are expected to table an offer for the experienced shot-stopper in the summer transfer window.
