Arsenal have agreed a deal with Chelsea to sign goalkeeper Petr Cech for a fee of approximately £11 million, according to a report by The Daily Mail newspaper.
According to Chelsea captain John Terry, he accepts goalkeeper Petr Cech will be sorely missed if he leaves Stamford Bridge and believes he is worth up to 15 points a season should he sign with Arsenal.
Cech – who played an instrumental role in Chelsea’s success since joining from Rennes in 2004 – may have found himself now as understudy to Thibaut Courtois at Stamford Bridge, but Terry is in no doubt of just what an important player the 33-year-old can be.
In an interview given to talkSPORT from China, where the former England defender is on a promotional tour, Terry said: “I am sure if he does leave the club, which nobody wants to see, but we understand he wants to play football, he is going to be sorely missed. He will improve whatever side he goes to.”
Terry added: “There is obviously talk of Arsenal signing Petr and if they do get Pete, that will strengthen them for sure. He will save them 12 to 15 points a season.” Read more
