Cech has agreed to a long-term contract with Arsenal after being sold by Chelsea for an undisclosed fee.

Cech joins Arsenal having made over 400 appearances for Chelsea since arriving in England in 2004. A three-time winner of the Premier League's Golden Glove award, Cech figures to immediately assume the Gunners' starting goalkeeper position, giving Arsenal a world-class shot-stopper with a wealth of Premier League experience. At 33 years old, Cech is within nine clean sheets of setting a new Premier League record, a feat he could accomplish in an Arsenal shirt this season.

Cech is close to completing a 10 million transfer to Arsenal, The Telegraph reports.

Cech moving across London to Arsenal would represent a significant coup for the Gunners, who have lacked a top-class goalkeeper for some time. At 33 years old, Cech has posted 162 clean sheets since joining Chelsea in 2004, which puts him within nine clean sheets of setting a new Premier League record for a goalkeeper. Adding substance to reports of Cech's Arsenal arrival is the fact that former Gunners' goalkeeping coach Tony Roberts left this week for the same position at Swansea City, opening the door for Cech to bring long-time coach Christophe Lollichon with him to the Emirates.

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.
