Arsenal have all but completed the transfer of their first signing of the summer.
Petr Cech can now finally move to the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger told the club’s official website:
“Petr Cech is a player that I have admired for a long time and I am very pleased that he has decided to join us. He has proven over many seasons that he is one of the outstanding keepers in the world and he will add great strength to our squad.”
Cech added: “I’m really excited about joining Arsenal Football Club and can’t wait to join up for preseason. I have the same commitment to football, the same motivation and the same hunger for success as I had at the beginning of my career, and I love the challenges brought by the top quality players you face while playing in the Premier League.
“When Arsene Wenger spoke to me about his ambitions for this club, and how he saw me as part of this team, the decision was clear.”
