Cech (neck) is still questionable for Sunday's season finale against Sunderland.

Cech has been bothered with the neck issue recently, but it was widely assumed that he would get the start Sunday in his last appearance for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. If he's unable to go, Thibaut Courtois will likely be in net.

Arsenal has opened talks with Chelsea in a move for Cech (neck), reports the Daily Mail.

Arsenal proposed a 10 million transfer for the goalkeeper. The move may be ideal for the veteran, who is already settled in London and wouldn't have to make a major move. He is currently dealing with a small neck issue, but could return to the final match of the season.

Cech (neck) has been ruled out for Monday's game at West Brom, but he could return for the season finale May 24 against Sunderland at Stamford Bridge.

Cech is widely believed to be leaving Chelsea this summer to ensure he gets more first-team football, as Thibaut Courtois has locked up the starting job. A start in the finale would allow the Chelsea faithful to give him a proper sending off after an illustrious career at Stamford Bridge.

Petr Cech's agent confirmed that talks about a summer transfer to Besiktas have begun, reports Sky Sports.

Cech has only made five starts in Chelsea's Premier League this season and is seeking more first-team action. Arsenal, Paris Saint Germain, and Real Madrid have all been touted as possible destinations for the veteran.

Inter Milan is joining Roma and Arsenal in their interest in pursuing Cech this summer, reports the Daily Mail.

Cech's current contract with Chelsea expires this summer, and he will become a free agent at that time. He has stated that he wants to have the opportunity to play in the Champions League, which could diminish his interest in moving to Inter.

Cech is starting Wednesday against Leicester City.

Thibaut Courtois has not fully recovered from his hip injury, so manager Jose Mourinho will slot in the best backup keeper in the world, though a clean sheet is hardly guaranteed based on how well Leicester have played of late.

Cech is in the starting XI for Chelsea's Premier League match against Everton on Wednesday.

Cech gets the start ahead of Thibaut Courtois, who is presumably only being rested, as he is available off the bench for the match.

Cech didn't have to make a single save in Chelsea's 5-0 rout of Swansea City on Saturday, his third consecutive clean sheet in all competitions, including two during Premier League play.

With Thibaut Courtois still not 100 percent due to a finger injury, Cech got another start against a struggling Swansea side no longer with Wilfried Bony to lead the attack. Up next in league play, if he starts, is a tough home game against Manchester City on Jan. 31.
