Chelsea keen on securing Oxlade-Chamberlain as part of Cech deal

Chelsea are keen on a swap deal involving goalkeeper Petr Cech and Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, according to reports online.

Cech has fallen down the pecking order with the Blues since losing his no.1 spot to Belgium’s Thibaut Courtois.

Cech history

The 33-year old has been Chelsea’s number 1 shot stopper since making the move to Stamford Bridge in June 2004, but saw himself restricted to appearances last season as manager Jose Mourinho decided that Courtois was the man he wanting in between the sticks.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is believed to be interested in landing himself a top-class goalkeeper as the current candidates at his disposal, Wojciech Szczesny and David Ospina, have failed to convince him that they can take on the responsibility.

Cech boost

Arsenal will be boosted by reports suggesting that Cech would like to stay in the Premier League. It's believe a lucrative contract offered by French side Paris Saint Germaine was turned down, further enhancing the Gunners' chances.

If the north London giants do go for the highly-rated 'keeper they may have to sacrifice their talented midfielder Oxlade-Chamberlain though, as Mourinho is purported to be keen on some sort of swap deal.

Whatever Arsenal decide to do they must move quickly, as rivals Manchester United also have their eyes on Cech.

Chelsea fans, should Mourinho be happy to let Cech go to Arsenal? Is there any remote chance you might get Oxlade-Chamberlain? Let us know in the comments box below.
