Petr Cech finally looks set to complete his switch to Arsenal, with the Czech international heading to North London to complete his medical ahead of the move.
BBC Sport journalist David Ornstein took to Twitter to deliver the news, revealing plans for the Chelsea veteran to have his medical this Friday.

Cech has long been linked with a move to Arsenal (via the Mirror), and the transfer has looked close for a while now. You can’t take anything for granted in football anymore however, and a transfer isn’t complete until it’s actually complete – as we learnt during the Gonzalo Higuain saga in 2013 (via The Guardian).
The 33-year-old will presumably come straight in as our new No.1, and will hopefully add some real stability to our back line. We have already seen a massive improvement in our defence in recent months, and Cech may well go a long way towards taking us that one step further towards Premier League glory.
