Our move for Petr Cech looks all but complete, although the Czech international is looking to bring his own staff to the Emirates. This has prompted our own goalkeeping coach Tony Roberts to plot a move away from the club, with Swansea a likely destination, according to the Mirror.
The Mirror claim Cech is keen to keep long-term coach Christophe Lollichon with him if he moves to the Emirates, meaning there would no longer be space for Roberts. The Arsenal man is unlikely to have any shortage of offers though, and will apparently be welcomed with open arms at Swansea.
A move to Wales would reunite him with former Gunner Lukasz Fabianski, who he worked closely with during the Pole’s time at the Emirates. Fabianski moved to Swansea on a free at the end of his Arsenal contract, and has been superb for Garry Monk’s side since his departure.
Senior coach Gerry Peyton may well be kept on, but the Mirror claim Roberts’ move to Swansea is close to being done.
