Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking rather pleased at the latest rumour from Metro who seem to think that Chelsea could be set to agree a Petr Cech Gunners switch.
The North Londoners have made it very clear that they would be willing to make a £7 million bid for Cech and with the Czech Republic international goalkeeper now firmly behind Thibaut Courtois in the pecking order at Stamford Bridge, we understand why he would want to move.
Jose Mourinho and Chelsea are now reportedly willing to allow their long-serving star to leave the club and seek out first team football.
However, we are slightly surprised that they would allow the player to move to one of their fierce rivals; that is if Mourinho actually considers Arsenal to be a rival at all in the title stakes!
According to our landlord who joins in the conversation over a pint, we think that Cech would make a huge difference to Arsene Wenger’s side and would not only provide competition for Wojciech Szczesny but usurp him in the first eleven altogether!
Arsenal fans. Do you think that the Cech could make a real difference to your squad? Would it be a title winning difference? Let us know your thoughts below.
