Jose Mourinho is willing to let the 32-year old leave Stamford Bridge
Arsenal are close to agreeing a deal for the transfer of Petr Cech. The 32-year old currently has a deal at Chelsea until 2016 but with his game time becoming more limited – due to the return of Thibaut Courtois – he looks to be on the way out.
Blues boss Jose Mourinho is now willing to let him leave at the end of the season and it is Arsenal who lead the race for his signature. Telegraph reporter Matt Law said thuis about a potential deal: “Arsenal had an inquiry about him last summer when they saw that Courtois was coming back.
“Ideally, Mourinho wouldn’t let him leave but he might have to. The service that Cech’s given in the eleven years – there’s a feeling that they will let him have his pick.”
It means that we could soon see Cech plying his trade in London for the Gunners.
