As January approaches so does the need for Premier League club’s to strengthen their squads as they enter the crucial second-half of the season.
Arsenal are coming off two losses after losing to Spurs and Southampton which ended their 22-game unbeaten run. In both of those games, Arsenal didn’t play well and combined with the number of injuries, especially in defence, Unai Emery needs to reinvest into the squad in January.
According to the Evening Standard, Arsenal are tracking Legia Warsaw goalkeeper, Radoslaw Majecki.
Bern Leno seems to be entrenched as the club’s first-choice goalkeeper under Emery. Petr Cech did hold the role at the beginning of the season but following his injury, Emery switched to the former Bayer Leverkusen man due to his ability with the ball at his feet.
It’s been a fairly average tenure for Cech at Arsenal. At times he’s proven to be a strong presence in goal but at others he has been a slight liability for the Gunners. His current deal runs out at the end of the season and it is yet unsure if Arsenal will offer him a new contract extension.
Cech has only made 11 appearances in the league this season and if his playing time continues to diminish he may indeed look to move away rather than staying at Arsenal.
The deal for Majecki seems to be one for the future and it could see Emiliano Martinez promoted to the second-choice position. On the face of it, it seems Cech’s career at Arsenal could well be coming to an end.
