Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky has words with Chelsea's Petr Cech on his future

Petr Cech

The out-of favour Arsenal man has revealed that he has discussed the topic of Cech’s impending Chelsea exit with the goalkeeper.

Long-term Chelsea servant Petr Cech is being heavily linked with a move elsewhere this summer - by the Daily Mail, among others - after being usurped for the number one spot by the impressive Thibaut Courtois.

The Czech Republic international made just 15 appearances last season following the arrival of Courtois, who had excelled on loan at Atletico Madrid in the three years previous.

In an interview with Goal.com, Rosicky admitted to having discussed the future of his national team colleague.

He said: "I would be lying if I said I didn't speak about it with Petr because it's no secret he wants to change clubs."

Arsenal, Spurs and PSG have been linked at various stages, per the Daily Mail, and Rosicky hinted at a bright future for the goalkeeper.

He said: "He will have a lot of options to go to a good club."

When asked if the discussions had included any mention of an Arsenal move, Rosicky declined to comment, saying: "Sorry, I won't interfere in that or get into any details."

Arsenal have been heavily-linked recently and seem to be leading the pack in the hunt for Cech. The goalkeeping position has been a problem one for Arsenal for a number of years now and it continues to be so.

Neither David Ospina nor Wojciech Szczesny fit the bill as keepers of the calibre required to mount a sustained title challenge and Cech would certainly be a huge upgrade.

At 33-years old there’s still plenty the Chelsea man has to offer and a few choice words from fellow Czech Rosicky may well tempt him to make the short journey across London.
