Arsene Wenger Finally Speaks On Petr Cech Transfer.

News of Arsenal's desperate need of a top-class goalkeeper has continued to surface on the internet everyday. In regards to this, many sources have been claiming that the Gunners are making contacts with Chelsea to see if they could get the services of Petr Cech but with Wenger's recent statements, that may be false afterall.

Petr Cech has developed concern at Chelsea and wants another club where he can be guaranteed of regular playtime between the sticks. Chelsea is not offering him that at the moment which is the more reason why he is pushing for a transfer. Arsenal among others were said to be interested in the Czech international but when asked if he would sell Cech if he was Jose Mourinho, Wenger replied:

"That’s a very tricky question because we are not interested in anybody at the moment."

“I don’t deal with the ‘if’. We have world-class goalkeepers, we’ve got three”, the 65-year-old added.

Jose Mourinho already made it known last week that he would not allow Cech leave if he had the power and later said he would prefer him leaving England if he is to join another club. From this statement, we can conclude that the Chelsea manager does not want the shot-stopper to join a rival club like Arsenal. The player's agent, Viktor Kolar has however revealed that the club has given them the go-ahead to discuss with any club who is interested in Petr Cech.

“Petr has confirmed his interest to play regularly at a top club.

“That’s the task that we are now working on, but other than that there has not been any other change in the terms of Petr Cech’s employment and the transfer period only begins on July 1.”

To follow Wenger's words when it comes to transfer matters could be quite misleading. Anyone who has known this man for some years should have observed that he does not like talking about his targets, so him denying interest in Cech might just mean that he really wants to sign him. He was not interested in Arteta, Podolski, Cazorla and many others, according to what he told us back then but what later happened?
