Reports suggest deal may be all but done.
Arsenal and Chelsea have held talks over the transfer of goalkeeper Petr Cech and it is believed that an agreement has already been made for the player to move from Stamford Bridge to the Emirates Stadium this January, according to the Daily Star.
The Czech Republic international has found himself behind Thibaut Courtois in the pecking order at Chelsea this season, with the young Belgian impressing whilst away on a three-year loan spell with Atletico Madrid.
Cech has had a long and successful career with the Blues, but now looks ready to take on a new challenge as he seeks to ensure he is playing regularly at the top level.
It looks as though progress has been made to ensure this move will go through, in what would make a superb signing for the Gunners to improve on their current number one Wojciech Szczesny.
Although the Polish international has shown flashes of brilliance in his time as first choice for Arsenal, he is also known for being error-prone and inconsistent, which looks to have encouraged manager Arsene Wenger to bring in the more experienced and reliable Cech, who has long been regarded as one of the best keepers in the world.
