Though Arsenal have successfully boosted their options in the final third, with new signings Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck both making immediate impacts, things at the back are shaky to say the least.

Petr Cech Chelsea training

Arsenal will look to lure Blues keeper Petr Cech to the Emirates Stadium in a £7m deal according to the Metro with the experienced custodian seen as the man to challenge Wojciech Szcz?sny for the Gunners starting spot.

The 32 year old Czech Republic international is too good to be left warming the Stamford Bridge bench and it seems that young Belgian Thibaut Courtois will now serve as Jose Mourinho’s first choice starter and a move away is likely.

Wenger is ready to meet Cech’s £100k a week wage demands and will hope Mourinho is ready to sell to a direct rival, much as he did when he allowed Juan Mata to join Man United in January.
