Arsenal’s Invincible right-back Lauren has seemingly announced the signing of Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech on his official Twitter page and hailed the capture in our attempts to clinch the Premier League.
#All the best to Cech. Long time without stability in that position and another great gooner move to get the Premier League.

Cech’s arrival seems imminent following various reports and few denials, with the Mirror reporting that an announcement was due this weekend after Jose Mourinho admitted defeat in preventing the 33-year-old from joining us (via the Mirror).
The magnitude of this signing cannot be underestimated and would signal another major step in the right direction following the arrivals of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.
Afer years of losing our top players to direct rivals, snatching Cech from a Jose Mourinho-managed side would show that we’ve arrived on the European stage and are an attractive proposition for top class talent.

Lauren also hinted at our needs for a top goalkeeper during the past few seasons having himself featured alongside David Seaman and Jens Lehman during his time with us, winning two league titles and three FA Cups.
The arrival of Cech would certainly put him among the most talented to ever appear between the sticks for us and his age will allow him to match, and exceed, their honours.
