Exclusive – Chelsea star would be perfect for Arsenal, claims former Gunner

first_imgFormer Arsenal striker John Hartson believes Petr Cech would be perfect for the Gunners – but doubts whether Chelsea would let the goalkeeper join one of their rivals.The Czech star has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge in the summer, after losing his first-team place to Thibaut Courtois.Arsene Wenger is in the market for a No.1 and is believed to have targeted the Blues shot-stopper.But Hartson, while backing the Frenchman to splash the cash, believes the former Rennes man may be out of reach.“Arsenal have to invest,” he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show. “Arsene Wenger needs to get the cheque book out again.“Arsenal’s squad is not as strong as Manchester City or Chelsea. They need to go and get the best players out there.“Petr Cech is only 32, so he’s still got seven, eight or even ten years left. Goalkeepers can go on forever. He’s got great quality.“We saw the other night at Leicester, he can still make great saves. Arsenal need a goalkeeper but whether Jose Mourinho will sell Cech to one of his biggest rivals next season? I don’t know.”last_img read more
