The Italian duo are also keen on bringing in a new shot-stopper in the upcoming summer transfer window, and have been alerted to Cech’s availability after this season.
The 32-year-old has long been regarded as one of the best in the world in his position, but has fallen behind in the pecking order at Stamford Bridge this year after Jose Mourinho made the choice to promote talented youngster Thibaut Courtois at the start of the campaign.
Cech will now surely leave to seek first-team football, and although the Daily Mail claims the Blues would allow him to move to Arsenal if he wished, they would surely rather he did join a foreign club instead.
The Czech Republic international would be a great signing for whoever can get him this summer, and Arsenal would dearly love to have a new number one next season.
