Arsenal are hoping Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech will demand a move to the Emirates this summer to force through a transfer deal.
Arsene Wenger has identified the 32-year-old stopper as the ideal No.1 to push the Gunners to a title win next season and hopes a £10 million bid will tempt the Blues into selling.
Cech will also be given a healthy pay-packet of £120,000-a-week but only if he can persuade Jose Mourinho to sanction a move from west to north London.
But that’s not the only obstacle with Stamford Bridge owner Roman Abramovich holding the final say over any prospective move, say The Sun.
According to the Daily Star, Mourinho insisted earlier this week that Cech would not even be sold this summer and would stay a part of his squad.
However, The Sun retort this be claiming Cech is overly determined to leave the club after playing second fiddle to Thibaut Courtois for almost the entire title-winning season.
Arsenal aren’t the only side interested, though, with Paris Saint-Germain, Inter Milan an Liverpool also said to be eyeing a move.
