The 33 year old Czech Republic international had to play second fiddle to Thibaout Courtois last season and isn’t likely to want to repeat the experience in 2015/16 and Arsene Wenger is ready to pay £11m for the experienced custodian.

Cech is keen to remain in London and will be seen as a step-up in quality from the likes of Wojciech Szczesny and David Ospina, who shared goalkeeping duties at the Emirates Stadium in 204/15.

Though Jose Mourinho is thought to want to keep hold of Cech it is believed that Chelsea will not stand in the player’s way if he pushes for a move to Arsenal.

Chelsea signed Cech in 2004 and he has gone on to rack up 485 appearances for the West London club.
