Seaman: “Cech is better than Arsenal’s keepers”

by -

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.”
