One of Arsenal’s most rumoured summer transfer target Petr Cech has moved to play down reports that a deal had already been struck with Arsenal over a proposed £11 million transfer from Chelsea, as talks continued over the future of the veteran goalkeeper.
It is no longer news that Arsenal are close to a deal for the Chelsea legend, who would prefer to keep his family in London as he seeks a move away from the Premier League champions in search of regular football.
On Monday evening, the Daily Mail reported that a deal had been agreed between Chelsea and Arsenal for Cech, but there’s been no official confirmation made by either club.
Cech himself later retweeted a message from his management company The Sports PR Company on his official Twitter account indicating nothing was completed yet.
Cech, who has played an instrumental role in Chelsea’s success since joining from Rennes in 2004, found himself as understudy to Thibaut Courtois at Stamford Bridge last season.
