Gunners consider tabling a bid for rival custodian.
For Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech, there will be no dearth of suitors this summer with reports in The Daily Express revealing that the Czech is now attracting attention even from Premier League rivals Arsenal, as their manager, Arsene Wenger, is hopeful of bringing him to the Emirates next season.
Cech has been the first choice ‘keeper for the Blues for the best part of a decade now, however, with highly-rated youngster Thibaut Courtois wanting to cement his place in the first team, manager Jose Mourinho will have to make some very tough decisions in the near future.
It is believed that the Portuguese tactician may now decide to bid adieu to fan-favourite Cech, who may be pushed down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge.
Meanwhile, Wenger is understood to be searching for a replacement for departed shotstoppers Lukasz Fabianski and Emiliano Viviano, and is viewing the veteran as the perfect man to provide first choice stopper Wojciech Szczesny with competition for a place in the first team.
However, the Gunners may still have to battle off competition from French sides Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco, both of whom are believed to be interested in the Czech legend.
