Chelsea legend Petr Cech wants Arsenal transfer

Petr Cech is prepared to leave behind Chelsea in the summer following a season playing second fiddle to Thibaut Courtois, but will snub a move to Liverpool in favour of a switch to Arsenal.

The Stamford Bridge legend would, according to the Daily Star, prefer to remain in London, and is eyeing a move across the capital to Chelsea’s rivals Arsenal.

The Star explain that staying in London would suit the Czech international given that his family are settled in the city.

However, the Mirror have also reported that his advisors are trying to force through a move to Paris Saint-Germain, as the Ligue 1 outfit are prepared to beat any offer made by Arsenal and match his £120,000 per-week Stamford Bridge wages.

The Blues will listen to offers of around £10m – a valuation that a number of top clubs are willing to meet given Cech still remains one of the best goalkeepers in Europe.

Cech was handed just his fifth Premier League start this season in Wednesday night’s 3-1 victory over Leicester City, as a result of a hip injury to no.1 stopper Courtois.

Squawka posted that the veteran had a 100% claim success and 71% distribution success at the King Power Stadium – making it no wonder that clubs are lining up for his signature.
