One of Arsenal’s most nerve racking-racking summer transfer deals could be wrapped up and announced in the coming days.
This report is according to Sky Sports who claim Petr Cech’s move to Arsenal could be completed by the weekend.
The report also claim that a transfer fee for the Czech Republic international is expected to be agreed by the two Premier League clubs in the next 24 hours.
The report also says that the 33-year-old has already agreed personal terms with the Gunners, however, no deal has yet been done as Arsenal continue to negotiate terms with Chelsea.
Chelsea captain John Terry said on Monday that he believes Arsenal will be buying an extra 12-15 points a season if they complete a deal for Cech.
“I am sure if he does leave the club, which nobody wants to see, but we understand he wants to play football, he is going to be sorely missed. He will improve whatever side he goes to,” Terry said.
“There is obviously talk of Arsenal signing Petr and if they do get Pete, that will strengthen them for sure. He will save them 12 to 15 points a season.”
This comment has prompted many to believe that although a deal has not yet been finalised for Cech, however, the Gunners are as closer to it than ever.
