The veteran Arsenal keeper Petr Cech was finally been given the Number One shirt at the Emirates, and then immediately saw the Gunners bring in Bernd Leno as competition, as well as the Colombian keeper David Ospina.
It would appear that Arsenal attempted to unload the 36 year-old, but the shotstopper decided to stay and fight for his place in the team. This is how the Express reported it…
Cech is set to be displaced as Arsenal’s No 1 by new signing Bernd Leno.
The former Chelsea stopper could be in for a different role compared to recent seasons with Unai Emery replacing Arsene Wenger as manager.
David Ospina could leave the Emirates as he drops lower down the pecking order at the north London club.
Arsenal recently confirmed the deal for Leno from Bayer Leverkusen for a fee of £19.3million.
And while Cech has admitted there has been interest in him, he wants to stay at the Gunners.
“Napoli were interested in me, but my future is at Arsenal and I do not think about changing clubs,” Cech said.
“I still have a year of my contract with Arsenal, the only thing I want to think about is fighting for a starting position.”
So do you think that Arsenal are actively trying to move on one of Cech or Ospina to make room for Leno? Or will they be happy to keep all three and play them in different competitions?
It’s a tough one…..
