Former Liverpool and England goalkeeper David James says Arsenal should have made a move for new Chelsea goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.
The Gunners signed 33-year-old Petr Cech from the Blues, their first summer signing, to strengthen their defensive department.
But James believes a move for the 28-year-old would have been wiser.
"Petr Cech is a very good goalkeeper but he's not at his best," James told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show.
"At 33 years of age, there's nothing to say he can't get back to his best form though.
"If he does then Arsenal still have one hell of a goalkeeper but Chelsea still get £11million for a 33-year-old with one year left on his deal.
"They have gone out and bought Asmir Begovic, who was sought after by many big clubs in the last two or three years, and been one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League.
"He's got age on his side and, alongside Thibaut Courtois, you've got two of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League with 15-plus years ahead of them.
"If I was an Arsenal fan I would have been happier to have signed Begovic."
