Petr Cech recently completed his move to Arsenal (via BBC), with the 33-year-old making the controversial switch from Stamford Bridge.
He has now been offered a challenge by former Liverpool shot-stopper Pepe Reina, with the Spaniard reminding him that the pair are even on Golden Glove awards in the Premier League.
Reina took to Twitter to issue the challenge, also wishing Cech the best of luck following his Emirates switch.
Congrats on the move big man and all the best for the new challenge!!!keep up the race for the clean sheets!! https://t.co/oZk8AVdHfM

Seeing as Reina is no longer in the Premier League and Cech looks to have a good few years still ahead of him, you would assume the Czech international is going to dwarf the former Red’s tally.

Our new veteran shot-stopper could prove a hugely important signing, and is the kind of player who can really take us up a notch. We already have two solid options in Wojciech Szczesny and David Ospina, but Cech is the type of keeper every team looking to make a title challenge needs.
Hopefully the signing proves as impactful as many seem to believe it will be, as next season we should most certainly be challenging for both the Premier League and the Champions League.
