Metro have Chelsea fans looking seriously shocked here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they claim that Arsenal are ready to launch a bid for Petr Cech.
According to the publication, the Gunners will make a £7 million bid in January and think that will be enough to see the keeper switch clubs and move to the other side of London.
As our regulars note, we understand the frustration of Cech and also think that Jose Mourinho is right to want to allow the long-serving Blues goalie to play first team football – not sit on the bench and watch Thibaut Courtois in the starting line-up each week.
It would be a huge coup for Arsenal but a fair few other clubs are keen on Cech, including Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain.
Whilst we think that the Blues and their manager Mourinho might be willing to allow Cech to leave, they might not want to sell to a title rival.
Chelsea fans. Do you think this could happen? Would you say that Cech deserves to go to a club who will play him week in, week out? Let us know your thoughts below.
