Chelsea transfer news
The Czech Republic international is also a target for the likes of Liverpool and AS Roma after dropping to the bench this season as youngster Thibaut Courtois has taken his place as number one for the Blues.
Cech has had a long and great career at Stamford Bridge but may now be heading for the exit next season as he looks to continue to play regularly as first choice for a top club.
Many big names seem ready to offer him a deal, with Arsenal among the frontrunners for the experienced shot-stopper as they consider replacing the inconsistent Wojciech Szczesny between the sticks.
Liverpool also need improvements in goal after some disappointing form from Simon Mignolet, and it is claimed that Chelsea will allow Cech to choose his next club in the summer transfer window.
