Petr Cech has rubbished speculation linking the Chelsea goalkeeper with a shock switch to London rivals Arsenal in the summer.

Arsene Wenger was reported to be weighing up a move for the Czech Republic international after the Gunners boss dropped number one shot-stopper Wojciech Szczesny in favour of Lukasz Fabianski.

The Blues have a ready-made replacement for Cech in the form of Belgium’s first-choice goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, who has impressed during his second season-long loan spell at Atletico Madrid.

But the 30-year-old, who joined from Rennis in a £7m deal in 2004, dismissed the suggestion that he could leave the Champions League winners for Arsenal.

“It is an interesting piece of news but it is such speculation that I think it’s not even necessary to comment on it,” Cech told isport.blesk.cz.

“I know of nothing, nobody has contacted me and, to be honest, I can’t even imagine it.

“I don’t even normally notice such rumours. But when it does get to me, I naturally look at it to know what to say about it later.

“There are players who do read newspapers. Some players read match reports to know what was written about them and where.

“I don’t do this, I don’t read newspapers because of such things. I don’t take rumours like this seriously.”
