Club legend: Petr Cech joining the club is an amazing possibility for Arsenal


Former Arsenal goalkeeper Bob Wilson says the imminent arrival of Petr Cech from Chelsea is an "amazing possibility" for the Gunners to be title contenders next season.

The 33-year-old is expected to leave Stamford Bridge this summer with Wilson also delighted at the fact that no Arsenal players will be involved in the deal.

"It's an amazing possibility for Arsenal and I wish this was an absolute definite," Wilson told Sky Sports News HQ.

"You have to look at the impact a 'keeper like Cech has on those guys in front of him.

"He has been there since 2004 and he is a Chelsea legend because of the authority he has and the presence he gives.

"Arsenal are now in a very strong position. They have paid off the [Emirates] stadium and have a very good squad with a really good group of British players in there.

"I am delighted there is no talk about there being a deal involving Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain or Theo Walcott.

"I would hate that to happen and would rather say 'no thanks, Petr Cech's great but I am sticking with these young players I have got'.

"He will be a huge step forward, it's an improvement for the side, which is why you go for it.

"I admire Chelsea and if this deal goes through, and I assume it must because of Roman Abramovich, although I don't see (Jose) Mourinho really backing this up or wanting this to happen."
