Petr Cech Will Undergo Arsenal Medical Today, Fee & Terms Agreed

By on June 26, 2015

The oracle has spoken. BBC journalist David Ornstein has confirmed that Petr Cech will undergo his Arsenal medical today ahead of his move from Chelsea.

We’ve been waiting patiently for news on our proposed move for Cech after Sky Sports News confirmed earlier this week that a £10.9m fee had been agreed with Chelsea.

They then claimed that personal terms with the 33-year-old goalkeeper had also been agreed, so it was just a matter of putting the player though a medical before the deal could be wrapped-up.

It seems the last remaining stumbling block will be overcome today as BBC journalist David Ornstein tweeted this morning that Cech will undergo his medical with Arsenal on Friday, and he also confirmed that a fee and personal terms are done.

For those of you who don’t know or aren’t on Twitter, Ornstein is widely regarded as the unofficial ‘mouthpiece’ for Arsenal so when he says something, it usually comes straight from the club.

Some Twitter users who don’t quite have the reputation of Ornstein claimed on Wednesday that a medical would happen today, so it seems they deserve a lot of credit too.

Cech’s medical should be a formality and the deal will probably be completed early next week. This is Arsenal we’re talking about – you know we like to drag these things out!
