Arsenal have reportedly agreed a deal to sign Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech in the January transfer window.
Cech emerged as a shock target for the Gunners this week as Arsene Wenger looks to strengthen his side for a title challenge this season. Reports had it that that Chelsea would consider selling the 32-year-old, who has fallen in the pecking order at Chelsea, losing his place to Courtois and the Czech is seemingly frustrated on the Chelsea bench and wants a move to get first team soccer. The Daily Star claims Arsenal have now provisionally agreed a deal to sign Cech.
While buying Cech would be good for Arsenal, for Wojciech Szczesny, it would mean keen competition for a placed in the starting lineup because even though he is the second choice at Chelsea, Petr Cech is still one of the best goalkeepers in the world
