According to Sky Sports, Chelsea are considering re-signing Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech this summer, as current Blues number one Thibaut Courtois looks set for a move to Real Madrid.

The move would seem a strange one, but Cech was only ousted from the Chelsea team due to Courtois being such a promising and highly-rated player.

Cech is a Chelsea hero

The veteran goalkeeper is a true Chelsea hero, having spent 11 years with the Blues before making a move across the capital to join Arsenal in 2015. While he has endured mixed fortunes in north London, Cech enjoyed an incredible career at Stamford Bridge.

According to the Telegraph, Arsenal duo David Ospina and Danny Welbeck face uncertain futures at the north London club. The pair has yet to return from World Cup duty after representing Colombia and England respectively in Russia.

According to reports from Sky Sports, Arsenal are still in negotiations with Wales international midfielder Aaron Ramsey over a new deal. The 27-year-old has just one year left on his current contract with the North London club.

Arsenal has a long history of players leaving their contract to expire or run to the last few months so that they get a bigger packet at Arsenal, or move on in a cut-price deal.

The 2018/19 Premier League season will be getting underway in a matter of weeks, and the final preparations are being made by all twenty teams who will be involved in the top tier of English football this season.

Arsenal defender Calum Chambers has signed a new contract with the north London club. The move comes after new Gunners boss Unai Emery reportedly told the former Southampton star he is in his plans for next season.

Chambers has struggled to nail down a starting position in North London since moving to the Gunners in 2014 from Southampton.

Not lived up to his supposed potential yet

The reason that Chambers has not yet nailed down a regular starting position is that he has not yet lived up to his supposed potential. Chambers arrived at Arsenal as one of the most promising young defenders in the country.

While we all like to pretend it doesn’t matter what order we playing everyone in throughout the course of the Premier League season, deep down, we’re all aware of the fact that it does matter – and it matters quite a lot. Depending on your circumstances, facing a series of big teams or small teams consecutively can really impact your momentum, and while it’s easy to say ‘you have to play everyone twice anyway’ let’s face it, we all know that logic is a little bit flawed.
