Arsene Wenger is on the lookout for a new shot-stopper, and is closing in on an £11m move for Chelsea keeper Petr Cech, according to the Daily Mail.
The 33-year-old looks likely to leave Stamford Bridge this summer, with his spot in the starting XI having been usurped by Thibaut Courtois.
The Mail reports that he is keen to remain in London however, which means we are the only team really in contention. The Czech international will surely be keen to continue playing in the Champions League, and a move to North London will mean he doesn’t have to uproot his family.
A deal has been touted for a while now, but it finally seems to be edging closer. The report suggests that talks will be stepped up in the coming days, with a deal likely to be concluded by next week.
Cech is a top quality goalkeeper, and could really add something to our side. Wojciech Szczesny and David Ospina have shown their quality at times, but the Blues veteran is arguably an improvement on both players.
