Arsenal are finally getting a safe pair of hands in Petr Cech

Published Add your comment

In recent days rumours have picked up pace with suggestions that Chelsea’s long-serving goalkeeper Petr Cech is on the verge of joining London rivals Arsenal.

With the Gunners experiencing recurring problems in the past with their man in between the sticks, it finally looks like they have successfully acquired a player who can make those problems a thing of the past.

With Cech being 33, it adds much needed experience to the Arsenal squad. The Czech international has won Premier League and Champions League titles with Chelsea, this experience will be vital to an Arsenal squad who will be aiming to challenge for the domestic crown next season.

Reports suggesting Cech will sign a deal with the Gunners in the coming days, the issue now remains for Arsene Wenger, which of his two current goalkeepers stay and which one leaves.

It’s no secret this season that Arsenal have had issues with their goalkeepers, many below par performances and off-field incidents by Wojciech Szczęsny saw him lose his starting spot to David Ospina, who Arsenal only recently bought from Nice last summer.

Reports emerging from Turkey this morning suggest that Arsenal are willing to let Ospina go to Fenerbahçe, only a year on from when he first signed for the north London outfit. The Colombian is currently on international duty at the Copa America, so I can’t imagine any sort of deal will be struck until his participation in the tournament is over.

Arsenal are finally stringing together a well-structured side that looks capable of causing trouble for reigning champions Chelsea in the upcoming Premier League campaign.

As for which goalkeeper will stay at Arsenal after the imminent arrival of Cech remains to be seen.
