Arsenal transfer gossip
Occasionally a reliable source for inside information on big transfer stories such as this, the popular Twitter personality claims the Czech Republic international shot-stopper is desperate to leave Stamford Bridge this summer.
Arsenal have long been mentioned as favourites to sign the 33-year-old, and it now looks as though there could be weight to the rumours.
There is no doubt the Gunners need improvements in goal after unconvincing seasons from both Wojciech Szczesny and David Ospina, with the Colombian international replacing the Pole as first choice for the time being.
Still, Cech would be a major upgrade, and according to the Daily Star, it is now tipped that he will make the surprise move to the Emirates Stadium, joining the Blues’ rivals after a long association with the club.
“Petr Cech to Arsenal is pretty much done with the keeper desperate to leave Chelsea,” the Secret Footballer tweeted on Monday.
