Arsenal move one step closer to sealing deal for Chelsea star after European club pulls out of race

CechChelsea and Arsenal fans have brought a tense atmosphere to the Football Transfer Tavern after Metro revealed how Paris Saint-Germain have pulled out of the transfer race for Blues goalkeeper Petr Cech, boosting the Gunners’ chances of landing him.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has made it clear that he does not want the Premier League veteran to move to North London but the final decision will be up to Roman Abramovich.

Punters here in the Tavern still believe that it would be unfair and disrespectful to limit the goalkeeper on which clubs he can and cannot join after he has been such a good servant for the Blues.

The 33-year-old still has a lot to give to the Premier League and it is only a good thing that a player of his calibre will not be moving abroad.

According to L’Equipe, Arsenal midfielder Thomas Rosicky has spoken to the Chelsea player about trying to convince his fellow countryman to join him at the Emirates.

Arsenal and Chelsea fans. How possible do you think it is that Petr Cech will join Arsenal? Let us know your thoughts below.
