Arsenal agree deal to sign Chelsea star in principle

Chelsea have agreed on a deal in principle to sell goalkeeper Petr Cech to Arsenal, Daily Star reports.

The Czech international is looking to make a move away from Stamford Bridge after playing most of the season second-fiddle to Thibaut Courtois, who returned from a three-year loan stint at Atletico Madrid in the summer.

After being the Blues’ number-one for 10 years, Cech is reportedly unhappy with his position in the club and hopes to depart in the upcoming transfer window.

And it seems that Premier League rivals Arsenal are the most interested, with Gunners boss Arsene Wenger ready to shell out £7million for his services.

It has been suggested that the Arsenal hierarchy have already begun negotiations, with some claiming that a deal in principle has been agreed to bring the 32-year-old in January.

If Cech was to make the jump to the Emirates, then it will cast doubt on the future of current Gunners number-one Wojciech Szczesny, who is unlikely to be happy playing behind the former Rennes star.
