Arsenal are set to offer Petr Cech an eye-watering deal to make him the highest paid goalkeeper in our history by offering him £100,000 per week as a move to bring in the Chelsea legend edges closer, The Telegraph reports.
After a few weeks of brinkmanship, it seems as though this deal will be sanctioned by Roman Abramovic despite the hesitancy of Jose Mourinho, the report suggests.
The move will signal a massive statement of intent on our behalf and after years of being financially prudent, to be able to snatch a player from Chelsea against Mourinho’s wishes is a clear representation of our progress.

Cech becoming our highest paid goalkeeper in history isn’t surprising either, the current market is one clearly more extortionate than in the past and we’ve adapted to the times.

Despite having two international stars on our books in David Ospina and Wojciech Szczesny, the fact that Wenger has moved swiftly when identifying a world class player in that position illustrates the ruthlessness we’ve longed for from the boss.
It seems as though an announcement is all we’re waiting for to welcome one of the best goalkeepers in the world to our squad.
