Petr Cech agent’s replies to talk of Arsenal star sealing return to Chelsea FC
The Arsenal goalkeeper's agent pours cold water on talk of a return to Chelsea FC this summer
Petr Cech’s agent has ruled out the Arsenal number one moving back to Chelsea FC this summer.
Unai Emery was appointed as Arsene Wenger’s successor back in May after Arsenal finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last season.
The Spanish head coach signed Germany international Bernd Leno in a £20m deal from Bundesliga giants Bayer Leverkusen in the summer transfer window.
Leno will be tasked with challenging Cech and David Ospina for a starting spot next season, although the Gunners could look to sell Cech or Ospina.
The Czech Republic international was handed the number one shirt at the end of the 2017-18 campaign to suggest Cech has a long-term future at The Emirates.
Chelsea FC are facing the real prospect of losing Belgian shot stopper Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid in the summer transfer window.
Cech has been linked with a potential return to Stamford Bridge to replace Courtois following his move to Arsenal in 2015.
The Arsenal goalkeeper’s agent Viktor Kolar ruled out Cech securing a return to Chelsea FC this summer.
“It is always busy during every transfer window around Petr Cech, as a great Premier League person,” Kolar told ESPN.
“However, he maximally focuses on the new season at Arsenal, no specific offer is available”
Arsenal have signed Juventus defender Stephan Lichtsteiner, Leno, Dortmund defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira and French teenager Matteo Guendouzi this summer.
