Chelsea interested in re-signing Petr Cech, Arsenal fans react

Petr Cech has been Arsenal’s number one goalkeeper since his move to the Emirates from Chelsea in 2015.

This season that looks set to change following the acquisition of Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen.

Cech came under criticism from pockets of fans during the 2017-18 campaign after making a few blunders in between the sticks.

Due to the likelihood that the 36-year-old will drop to second in command, there has been speculation that he will move on.

On Tuesday, Sky Sports News reporter Kaveh Solhekol¬†tweeted that the Blues are interested in re-signing Cech, but are also keeping tabs on Leicester City’s Kasper Schmeichel and Roma shot-stopper Alisson as replacements for Thibaut Courtois.

Cech spent 11 years at Stamford Bridge, winning 13 major trophies, including four Premier League titles and the Champions League.

A return to the West London outfit at this stage of his career would be a surprise move, particularly if he is required to be Maurizio Sarri’s number one.

On Reddit, the majority of Arsenal fans seem content with the idea of offloading Cech, while others want him to stay put.
