Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking gutted at the news coming from Metro, who seem to think that the Blues have allowed Petr Cech to enter into talks with Arsenal.
The north London club have been chasing the Chelsea player for some time now and as one of our punters note, should reports be right and Cech to Arsenal be basically a done deal, we think that Arsene Wenger’s men could seriously be gunning for that title next season – and the general consensus in the Tavern is that Chelsea will seriously come to regret letting Cech leave for one of their rivals.
We think that this could well be a huge step for the Gunners in their quest to build a side capable of doing more than coming fourth, and as our landlord quips, Cech is also someone who has a winning mentality – and that has been missing at Arsenal for some time.
Chelsea fans. Is this a huge mistake? Should Mourinho try and stop it? Let us know your thoughts below.
