Arsenal are keen to push forward in their pursuit of Chelsea stopper Petr Cech, having seen Wojciech Szczesny collapse and perform poorly during the away game against Southampton.
Having seen Szczesny suffer from a series of mistakes over the course of his career, Arsene Wenger has finally lost faith with him.
Two costly mistakes from the Poland international saw the Gunners collapse 2-0 against one of their top rivals for a Champions League place in the Premier League.
Wenger dropped Sczcesny for the game in the FA Cup today, preferring David Ospina, but he is looking for a first choice replacement.
For that, he will go back to Chelsea and Petr Cech, who has become second choice at Stamford Bridge after the emergence of Belgian international Thibaut Courtois.
The west London club have valued Cech at around £7 million, and Arsenal are willing to match that, according to the Daily Star.
However, there is no guarantee that Chelsea will agree to sell to one of their close rivals.
Cech would be keen, however, according to his agent, who said: “I think Petr would be considering it.”
