Robert Pires also made clear that it will be difficult for the Gunners to finish top of the pile because competition is fierce, with their rivals Liverpool, Chelsea and both Manchester clubs strengthening their squads for the new campaign, which begins on the 8 August.
Robert Pires also told Sky Sports “I hope (the signing) will work, because he can make a big difference. It is good news for Arsenal the signing of Petr Cech.”

The Colombian shot-stopper is the odd-one-out thanks to Wojciech Szczesny counting as a homegrown player and he will likely be on his way out of the Emirates, with La Liga giants Valenica potentially being a contender for the 26-year olds signature.
