Imminent arrival from Chelsea FC, Petr Cech, is worth 15 points for Arsenal FC, claims John Terry.
Cech’s move to Arsenal is going to be completed soon. The goalkeeper has been linked with the Blues for a long time and confirmation of a move being in process started doing rounds a few days ago. Sky Sports have officially confirmed their that Cech “has agreed personal terms in principle on a switch to the Emirates Stadium”. However, the two clubs are still negotiating the fee for the player and discussions were likely to continue this week.
John Terry heaped praise on the outgoing player claiming he was going to strengthen any side he joined.
a If they do get him, he will strengthen them for sure,a Terry told TalkSport . . a He will save them 12 or 15 points a season. Petr was an unbelievable professional last year. When you get left out of the team it can be hard to accept but when he came in he was exceptional.
a He deserves a lot of credit for that. We understand he wants to play first-team football but nobody wants to see him leave the club. Hea s going to be sorely missed and will improve any side he goes to.a
The transfer fee for Cech is still unknown but with Chelsea’s request to receive a home-grown player as part of the transfer denied, it will only be a cash deal. Initial reports claimed it will be around A?11m.
