Petr Cech was fantastic in Arsenal's win over Everton in the Barclays Asia Trophy Final.
Arsenal started with a really strong squad in what could very well resemble their week one lineup. They outplayed Everton the whole way and were in full control by the 62nd minute, when they were 3-0 up with goals from Theo Walcott, Santi Cazorla, and Mesut Ozil. They enjoyed 53% possession and had 18 shots to Everton's six. The Toffees were able to return a goal in the 75th minute via Ross Barkley, but they never threatened Arsenal. This Gunner team looks very dangerous when healthy and Chelsea will have their hands full in their title defense. Jul 18 - 10:47 AM

Arsenal have confirmed the signing of Petr Cech from Chelsea complete with the obligatory Tweeted photo of the player in an Arsenal shirt.

It isn't often that Arsene Wenger gets one over on Jose Mourinho but it appears that he has today as the North London club announce the signing of one of Mourinho's stalwarts in Petr Cech. While Cech wouldn't have played much at Stamford Bridge, he should be an improvement over David Ospina/Wojceich Szczesny and provide a significant talent boost to Arsenal over where they left off last season. Given that Arsenal were excellent over the second half of last season, things are certainly going their way heading into the start of the 2015-16 season.

Petr Cech is reportedly at Arsenal today having his medical exams ahead of finalizing a permanent move across London early next week.

All other details of the deal between Arsenal, Chelsea and the player are reportedly settled so the medical should be the only hurdle remaining to the transfer going final. Various pundits have been trying to poke holes in this deal from the Arsenal side but it's hard to find a flaw unless you're really going out of their way. He isn't Thibault Courtois or David De Gea or Manuel Neuer but none of those three players is available and Cech should be a significant upgrade over David Ospina and Wojceich Szczesny.

Romanian wonderkid Vlad Dragomir could be unveiled as Arsene Wenger’s first signing of the summer despite the club reportedly agreeing an $18 million deal for Petr Cech from Chelsea yesterday.

The 16 year-old is believed to be one of Europe’s hottest prospects attracting the attention of a number of top clubs including Inter Milan and Monaco but given Wenger’s reputation for nurturing and developing young talent the central midfielder opted for a move to London. Potentially Dragomir is a major coup for Arsenal (one for the future) but supporters believe Wenger needs established players now to mount a serious title challenge and will be disappointed to learn that long time target Jackson Martinez will not be gracing the BPL just yet - the Colombian forward has agreed a move to La Liga side Atletico Madrid. However Adrien Rabiot still remains very much on the Gunners radar after the PSG player confirmed he may need to leave the Parisian club in order to find first team football.

According to the Daily Mail, Petr Cech has signed with Arsenal for £11million and will be in line to face his former club in the Community Shield on August 2nd.

There haven't been any official confirmations on Arsenal or Chelsea web sites or Twitter feeds as of yet but the Daily Mail aren't equivocating with their writing. They kick off their article with the line "Arsenal have completed the signing of Chelsea's Petr Cech..." Not too much uncertainty there. If true, both the acquisition and price are excellent for Arsenal. Cech may not be up to his former standard as the best goalkeeper in the world but he is still a significant upgrade over David Ospina and Wojceich Szczesny and in a tier of goalkeepers just behind Thibault Courtois and David De Gea at the top of the Premier League goalkeeping charts.

Petr Cech is set to meet with Chelsea later today to discuss his future.

Cech reportedly wants to stay in London, which would suggest a move to Arsenal, bur Chelsea are not fond of selling players to direct competitors and it's a bit unlikely they'll let him make the move to the Gunners. PSG are also interested in the goalkeeper's services and the Blues would rather sell him to the French club, at a reported price of around £11m. If Cech is at Arsenal next season, he should be a top three fantasy goalkeeper.

Chelsea will hold talks with Petr Cech to decide on his future at the club.

Cech has a year left on his contract with the Blues but is not content with his role at the club since Thibaut Courtois' arrival last summer. Cech has been relegated to a backup role and is not content with sitting on the bench. He hinted a few days ago that his life would be easiest if he were to remain in London, so he may be planning a move to Arsenal if Chelsea can be persuaded of it. It's hard to imagine Chelsea selling the goalkeeper to Arsenal and Manchester United, so a move to a different league must also be in play. There are numerous options here, and Cech's fantasy value won't be known for next season until his future is decided.

Petr Cech was quoted in the Telegraph as saying that his life overall would be easiest if he stayed in London which would, seemingly, mean a move to Arsenal.

Siting the desire to keep his family situation - schools, etc. - stable in London, Petr Cech hinted that a move from West London to North London and Arsenal is his most likely next step after the Chelsea board sanctioned a move to another Premier League club. The Czech international said "If I move, it brings difficulties, I must change everything, looking for housing, a school for children and so on." He didn't rule anything out but the tide certainly seems to be heading toward a move to the Emirates.
Jun 9 - 10:05 AM is reporting that Petr Cech will choose Arsenal over PSG as his next club indicating a desire to start regularly and not uproot his life from London.

Would Chelsea prefer to lose their former number one to a potential Premier League competitor or the club that knocked them out of the Champions League this past season? Tough choice. Cech seems determined to leave now that it is clear that he is second choice behind Thibaut Courtois. There are rumors of a promise to allow him to leave for a club of his choosing after he agreed to stay on for Courtois' first year at the club. If this is true, it could be good news for Arsene Wenger who would certainly enjoy stealing a Chelsea legend who still has some good years left.

Petr Cech started for Chelsea in their friendly against Sydney FC yesterday.

Cech has been replaced by Thibaut Courtois as the main goalkeeper at Chelsea this season and wants to leave to a club where he will be the starter. He has a number of suitors and will most likely be gone by the summer. This move could be Chelsea's way of showcasing his skills and showing teams he can still play as a way to increase his price. His fantasy stock will increase next season if he ends up at a club where he's the starter.

Petr Cech will play some part of Sunday's match but may not start.

Jose Mourinho is unsure if Petr Cech will start but he will play some part of Chelsea's last match. This could very well be Cech's last match in a Chelsea uniform so it's not out of the question that he starts and is taken out early to get the fans' respect. Since we don't know how much either goalkeeper(Cech or Thibaut Courtois) will play on Sunday, it's very risky to play either one in fantasy. It's very likely neither one earns a clean sheet due to restricted playing time. Avoid both at all costs.

Petr Cech is in talks with Turkish club Besiktas about a possible summer move.

Cech has lost his position as Chelsea's number one goalkeeper and is looking to move somewhere else. The goalkeeper is 32 years old and still remains one of the best goalkeepers in the world, but Thibaut Courtois has replaced him at Stamford Bridge. There are bigger teams than Besiktas that are looking at Cech, so it's unknown if he'll head to Turkey or choose to remain in one of Europe's top leagues. If he ends up in the Premier League, he will likely be a top fantasy pick next season.

Petr Cech will be assessed after picking up a muscular problem during Saturdays’ Euro qualifying draw against Latvia while his Czech team mate Tomas Rosicky won’t be involved in Slovakia because of illness.

The extent of the Cech injury is not currently known but if the Chelsea stopper did suffer a strain – even a minor grade one tear – then 2/3 weeks on the sidelines is realistic. With Mark Schwarzer now plying his trade at Leicester Mourinho could be forced to use the inexperienced Mitchell Beeney or Jamal Blackman as back-up for Thibaut Courtois. Chelsea take on Stoke this weekend at Stamford Bridge and the home side will be hoping top scorer Diego Costa [hamstring] will be available while John Obi Mikel is also closing in on a return following knee surgery.
Mar 31 - 4:52 AM

Eden Hazard has stated he would back a Petr Cech exit this summer after the goalkeeper made comments regarding a summer move.

Cech mentioned in recent days that he would consider leaving Stamford Bridge this summer because he doesn't want to spend another season as an understudy to Thibaut Courtois. The news is unsurprising, as the 32-year-old only has a few years of football left and he understandably wants to start, especially given the fact he is still one of the best goalkeepers around. Cech has been linked with Liverpool and Arsenal amongst other teams, but it's uncertain if Cech wants to remain in the Premier League or leave for another league. He is not a fantasy option at the moment and there is a chance he never will be in the Premier League again.

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech started in place of Thibaut Courtois on Wednesday and impressed with another clean sheet.

Cech has been behind Courtois on the pecking order this season but earned a start on Wednesday and was brilliant, making two incredible saves with the flick of his foot to keep the game level. Courtois has been struggling with an injury lately but also looks to have lost his confidence, and it's unclear how long Cech will have the starting job. It's worth noting Cech has five clean sheets in five Premier League games this season for an insane average of 12 fantasy points per match. We would feel safe using him against anyone if we knew ahead of time that he's guaranteed to start.
