Arsenal are set for considerable changes to their ranks this summer and, having focused on new signings, departures from the Emirates Stadium are now likely.
The capture of Germany stopper Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen means that an exit between the sticks is set to go ahead and reports state Petr Cech is focused on the Gunners – which leaves David Ospina set for an exit.
Cech has been touted for a potential return to former club Chelsea, who are in the market for a replacement for seemingly Real Madrid bound Thibaut Courtois, but his agent has stated he will remain in north London.
Speaking to ESPN, Viktor Kolar said:
“It is always busy during every transfer window around Petr Cech, as a great Premier League person. However, he maximally focuses on the new season at Arsenal, no specific offer is available.”
Cech and Leno are both expected to head to Singapore for two pre-season matches against Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, as the pair commence their fight to start the season as first-choice stopper.
