Cech is set to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season after losing his place in the starting line-up to young Belgian stopper Thibaut Courtois at the beginning of the campaign and likely made his farewell appearance for the Pensioners against Sunderland last Sunday.
With Jose Mourinho already confirming to The Guardian earlier in the month that he would prefer the Czech international not to join a direct rival in the summer, Arsenal fear that the Blues are attempting to ensure that the 33-year-old moves abroad.
Arsene Wenger’s concerns may come in the form of Paris Saint-Germain, who are keen on the experienced stopper.
Reports claims that the Gunners have made an enquiry for the veteran and have been told he will cost around £10 million, but firmly believe that their London rivals are doing their best behind the scenes to block a move to the Emirates.
In 11 years at Stamford Bridge, the former Stade Rennais man has won the Premier League four times, four FA Cup titles, the Champions League and the Europa League.
