Arsenal are close to completing the signing £120,000-a-week star according to fresh reports.
Arsenal are closing in on the transfer of Chelsea’s Petr Cech, with Arsene Wenger reportedly very confident of sealing the deal according to Metro.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been on the heels of the Blue’s legend in recent weeks, after the Czech Republic international fell down the goalkeeper pecking order at the Stamford Bridge to new-boy Thibaut Courtois.
Wenger is set to mount a serious challenge for the Premier League title next season and the boss intends to strengthen the final line of his defence, after reportedly losing faith in former Arsenal number one Wojciech Szeczesny.
Cech on his own part has recently talked up a move across London, insisting the decision was thoroughly thought through with his family playing a major role in his final decision.
The 33-year-old is set to hold talks with Chelsea soon, and would make known officially, his intentions to join a rival club, with sources close to Cech saying that the legend will force through his request to join Arsenal.
