Chelsea’s Petr Cech 5/4 to make shock switch to Arsenal this summer
Competition: Premier League
Market: Petr Cech to join Arsenal
Odds: 5/4 @ Ladbrokes
Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech is expected the leave the club this summer after losing his place to Thibaut Courtois last season. The experienced shot-stopper has been an incredible servant to the Blues in the Premier League, and is regarded among the top-10 best goalkeepers in the world.
Cech has been given game time in the domestic cups, but it’s not enough to keep him at Stamford Bridge next season, as he feels he can still be a No.1 at the top level elsewhere. Spending an entire campaign on the bench isn’t what he is used to, and not something he wants to happen again, so the Londoners are putting him up for sale.
Surprisingly, Arsenal are the frontrunners for his signature. Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has already said he has no control over where Cech goes, and the goalkeeper himself has said he would prefer staying in London due to his family, which puts Arsenal in the driving seat.
They would jump at the chance of having Cech as their first-choice between the sticks for next season, with Wojciech Szczesny and David Ospina deemed only okay. As a result, Ladbrokes are giving odds of 5/4 for Cech to make the surprise move to Arsenal this summer.
