Arsenal transfers: Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech delivers update

Petr Cech has moved to deny that he has agreed a deal to join Arsenal.
The Chelsea goalkeeper was reported to be on the brink of an £11m switch to the FA Cup winners on Monday evening.
The 33-year-old was believed to be settling personal terms with the Gunners, whilst Arsenal were negotiating a fee with Chelsea for the shot stopper.
However, Czech Republic international Cech retweeted a message from his sports pr company, aptly named Sports PR Company, who had earlier denied that the proposed transfer had been finalised.

Former Arsenal goalkeeper Bob Wilson was quick to take to social media to welcome the imminent signing of Cech on Monday night.
Wilson, who was part of the north London outfit’s famous double-winning side in 1970/71, hailed Cech as a great goalkeeper.

Cech has won four Premier League titles, the Champions League, the Europa League, four FA Cup crowns and three League Cups during his 11-year stay at Stamford Bridge.
The Chelsea legend has made 485 appearances for the west London side in all competitions following his move to Chelsea from Rennes in 2004.
