Former Man United midfielder tempted to back Arsenal for title
Former Man United midfielder Keith Gillespie believes Arsenal will be title contenders if Petr Cech completes proposed move
Keith Gillespie admits he is tempted to back Arsenal to win the Premier League title next season.
The Gunners appear to be close to signing Chelsea second-choice goalkeeper Petr Cech in a reported £11m deal from the Premier League champions.
Blues captain John Terry claimed that the Czech Republic international would save Arsenal 15 points next season if Cech moves to The Emirates.
Former United midfielder Gillespie believes Arsenal can win the title if Wenger signs Cech and adds a couple more signings to his squad.

Cech has been playing second fiddle to Belgium international Thibaut Courtois throughout the Premier League campaign.
The 33-year-old made just seven appearances in the English top-flight last season as he struggled to dislodge Courtois.
Arsenal finished in third place and 12 points behind champions Chelsea last season.
The Gunners won back-to-back FA Cups in May after a 4-0 victory over Aston Villa in Wembley.
