Arsenal in talks with European legend confirms CEO

Last updated : 16 June 2015 By DSG

The Arsenal chief executive told the programme that Arsenal are in talks with Petr Cech and Chelsea regarding the player moving to the Emirates but that these talks were at a delicate stage.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is less than happy to sell the player to a rival but with Cech preferring to remain in London it makes Arsenal the more likely destination for the player

The report claims that Cech will command a £10million transfer fee but that would seem good value for a player that headed the list of clean sheets despite having reduced opportunity to play as the No.2 at Chelsea.

Cech joined Chelsea from Rennes in 2004 and has gone on to make 485 appearances and in the process win virtually everything there is to win in club football including the 2011-12 Champions League

The 33-year-old veteran made just 15 appearances in all competitions for Chelsea in 2014-15 compared with 45 the season before.

Cech is not happy to be a backup keeper and is looking for more opportunities to play which Arsenal appear willing to give the Czech Republic international with 114 caps.
