Former Arsenal ace Lauren has taken to Twitter to wish Petr Cech all the best ahead of his expected move to the Emirates and called it a great move by The Gunners.
Lauren, a key member during the club’s Invincibles reign, played in front of the likes of David Seaman and Jens Lehmann, and knows all about the importance of having a strong, consistent number one.
Over the past few years, the Gunners have been criticised for their lack of composure and leadership in the goalkeeping department, yet that could all change very soon.
As per various reports, Chelsea’s Petr Cech is on the verge of trading the Blues for North London, the Mirror claiming a deal is all but done with the Czech number one reassured of the number one spot.
Taking to Twitter to comment on the deal, Lauren feels it’s a great move by the Gunners and one which will bring them closer to winning the Premier League title.
#All the best to Cech. Long time without stability in that position and another great gooner move to get the Premier League.— Lauren Etame Mayer (@Lauren12arsenal) June 20, 2015
Chelsea’s 6ft 5inch shot-stopper joined the West Londoners in the summer of 2004 and has gone on to make 485 appearances for the club in all competitions.
With four Premier League titles, four FA Cups and a Champions League success to his name the Gunners are potentially getting a goalkeeper of vast experience and a winning mentality.
At 33 years of age, he has plenty more years in him left at the top level and the chance to extend his trophy cabinet donning the Arsenal shirt.
