Arsenal news and transfer roundup: Cech deal imminent and Walcott to pen new deal

The weekend’s biggest Arsenal transfer gossip all under one roof.

Petr-Cech-Chelsea

Arsenal could complete the £11m signing of Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech by the end of the week, according to the Daily Mail.

Chelsea are reluctantly ready to let him move across London, with talks between the two set to take place at some point in the next few days.

However, Arsenal are not prepared to get into a bidding war with anybody in the race to sign Liverpool star Raheem Sterling, the London Evening Standard reports.

The Gunners, along with Manchester City, are keen to prize the winger away from Anfield this summer, but are ready to turn their attentions elsewhere if his £50m asking price remains the same.

Gunners star Theo Walcott is set to pen a new contract with the club this week, following much speculation about his future, the Daily Mirror reports.

The 26-year-old is about to enter the final year of his deal at the Emirates, but talks have been ongoing and there now appears to be light at the end of the tunnel.

Jack Wilshere

Midfielder Jack Wilshere has declared his commitment to the club by denying that he is interested in linking up with Manchester City just to make up the numbers, according to the Daily Express.

City have been rumoured to be interested in the England international as they look to increase their home-grown quota, but Wilshere has publicly stated that he has no intention of leaving north London.
