Our hopes of securing a deal for Petr Cech took another twist after Chelsea reportedly demanded a homegrown player to be included in any potential deal for the legendary goalkeeper, Sky Sports reports.
Cech reportedly wants to remain in London where his family is settled and we can offer him the chance to remain at the top-level. The 33-year-old remains one of the best goalkeepers in Europe and could be a major factor if we’re to challenge for the league next season.

5) Theo Walcott

The Telegraph recently reported that Mourinho is a huge fan of Walcott and given his contractual situation, the 26-year-old could become the most accessible.
However, recent reports suggested that our No.14 is close to signing a new contract (via the Mirror), it seems as though Walcott isn’t interested in a move across London.
