Arsenal transfer round-up: Delay emerges over confirmation of Cech deal

A round up of news stories this morning about Arsenal.

The Daily Express has reported that Arsenal fans may have to wait until next week for Petr Cech’s move to the Emirates to be confirmed.

The experienced Czech goalkeeper is on the verge of joining the Gunners, as Arsene Wenger looks to build a solid squad for next season.

The paper claims that personal terms and a fee between the clubs have already been agreed, with a medical still to be undertaken by the player.

The Daily Mirror has reported that Real Madrid are interested in a possible deal for Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny.

The Frenchman is thought to be on the radar of the Spanish club as Rafa Benitez looks at ways of revitalising his squad.

The Mirror claims Arsenal will oppose any deal because of how important Koscielny has become to their backline.

The Daily Mirror has reported that a decision over the future of Morgan Schneiderlin at Southampton is due within days.

The French midfielder is mentioned as a target for Arsenal by the paper, as the Gunners mull over the possibility of paying over £20 million to get their man.

The Mirror suggests his heavy desire to play in the Champions League is the main reason he’s considering an exit.
