Blues keeper set for Emirates Stadium switch.
Chelsea keeper Petr Cech has agreed personal terms with Arsenal ahead of a likely summer switch according to Sky Sports.
The 33-year-old has been linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium for some time now and though the two clubs are yet to agree a fee for the Czech Republic international, Sky Sports believes a move is imminent.
Cech found himself in the unaccustomed position of warming the Blues bench in 2014-15, with Jose Mourinho ushering in Thibaut Courtois after his three-season-long loan spell at Atletico Madrid, and a Chelsea exit is therefore not a huge surprise.
Chelsea would prefer to sell Cech to PSG according to Sky Sports but Cech is keen to remain in the English capital having represented the West London side since 2004.
Arsenal are said to have offered Cech a contract worth a massive £100k a week (Via the Daily Telegraph), putting him up alongside the club’s top earners Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.
Wenger would do well to bring in Cech as he’d provide a far better option between the sticks than Pole Wojciech Szczesny and Colombian David Ospina, who both failed to impress on a consistent enough basis last season.
Cech has been a loyal servant to Chelsea for over a decade, making 485 appearances for the Blues, and even fans of the club would probably graciously accept his move to an arch rival.
