David Seaman urged Arsenal to sign Petr Cech as the Gunners’ first-choice goalkeeper this summer, as the Czech Republic international is expected to leave Chelsea in the summer.

Among others, Manchester United are thought to be keeping tabs on Cech’s situation at Stamford Bridge as David De Gea is continuously linked with a move away from Old Trafford to join Real Madrid. But Arsenal are also thought to be monitoring him – Wenger thinks Ospina and Szczesny are not at his level.

And now also an Arsenal legend such as David Seaman feels that Cech would walk in as the No1 between the posts at most Premier League clubs. He told Metro: “A lot of rumours that Petr Cech has become available but if De Gea leaves Manchester United then they will be in for him, he’ll be in high demand. Will Chelsea even let him leave to a rival?”

He added: “I think Cech in any squad will make them better, I don’t want to put a downer on Ospina or Szczesny, but Cech is a quality goalkeeper and I don’t think he’ll go to any club where he could be considered a No2. Wherever he goes he’s going to be a No1.”

Chelsea’s iconic figure, Frank Lampard has left the door open for a possible return to Chelsea one day

He played his last game in the Premier League with Manchester City as he prepares to go on a different adventure in the US. Asked whether or not he would like to return to his former club one day, he said:

“I’m not someone who says they will miss the dressing-room banter. That’s not really me. I have a varied life and could get by without football if that’s the way it pans out. I’ll always keep my season ticket at Chelsea though and if they want me back in any capacity…”

However Jose Mourinho was quick to stop the rumours spreading around and said:

“He is not one that interests us at this point in time. He is a great striker but is not within our objectives to strengthen the squad for next season. We’re not interested.”

Yarmolenko has his sights set on a European move after becoming champions with his team Dynamo Kiev.

He vowed to stay in Kiev until they lifted their first trophy since 2008-2009 but he has been strongly linked to a move to Chelsea, Liverpool or Tottenham

Asked whether or not it is a good time for him to leave, he said:

“I think that right now is the perfect time to change clubs. I promised that until we become champions, I was not going anywhere. I kept my promise, we became champions.

Yarmolenko has already spoken with the president of the club, he added:

“The president knows that I want to leave, I have repeatedly spoken about this. I want to grow. It is hard, it is unclear where I will play next. There have been suggestions from good teams.”

“I feel the strength and confidence to be able to play in one of the top championships. If I want to play enough in Europe, now is the time to move.”

Cech left Chelsea last summer after eleven years and many trohpies

Instead of being harassed by questions regarding the demolition of  Aston Villa in the FA Cup final, Arsene Wenger was asked about the potential signing he would make this summer and he said:

““People forget that for years we had to sell our best players, people forget that. It was a very difficult period for us.That is the reality. Since we start to buy again we improve. “People start talking about stratospheric numbers. We will not be in that market for financial reasons.

“I have not made a clear decision of what I will do, but don’t rule anything out or tell you how much we spend.

However when asked about Petr Cech, his ton completely changed and he added:

“If you look at the stats, Ospina is the best goalkeeper in the league. You might not share that opinion, but in the mathematics he is.

“I don’t know what is happening with Petr Cech, we have just won the cup and so I can’t come out and say anything straight after.You will see what we will do by the end of the transfer window”

Juventus will meet Barcelona in Berlin for the Champions League final on June the 6th for their first European taste since 1996

Barcelona are favourite to win it but not according to to Gianluca Vialli. He reckons his old club still has it and can win it despite being the underdog. He said:

“They will have to defend with so many men behind the line of the ball, even if that means parking the bus like Jose Mourinho and Roberto Di Matteo.”

Vialli admitted, Barcelona are still stronger, especially with their tri at the front but his old club should have a go and give everything, he added:

“Barcelona are stronger, don’t forget that. They’re best encountered in a one-off game as they’re rarely below-par twice. If you have people like Messi, Neymar and Suarez, you can do a lot of damage.”

Yes, Spain has had a very bad tournament in Brazil last year during the summer.

The biggest question one of the Chelsea player, Diego Costa faces is whether or not he was right to decide to play for Spain.

The Chelsea striker, has been unable to make an impression in his native country last summer, and has come under scrutiny.

In fact, since the last World Cup, he hasn’t been fit to take the call from Spain on numerous occasions and this lead to reports questioning his commitment for the national team. The most worrying thing for Costa is that Del Bosque hasn’t picked him for the last two or three national games, and it is believed Costa is unhappy with the situation and worried about his future for the national team.
