Roma look to open bidding for Arsenal target

Roma are looking at opening the bidding for Chelsea’s Petr Cech, with his current boss claiming there are no offers to consider at present, the DailyMail reports.

The Chelsea boss admitted today that he had received no offers for his former number one, despite his falling out of favour this season.

Jose Mourinho said: ‘On my desk, normally from my board’s desk the information arrives, I have zero. Zero proposals.

‘At this moment, Petr Cech is our goalkeeper and has a contract for two more years.’

Arsenal, Liverpool and Roma are all rumoured to be keen on his signing, with the 32 year-old keen on securing first-team football in order to remain as his country’s first-choice goalkeeper.

The Czech international has fallen out of favour at Stamford Bridge, despite earning the Premier League Golden Glove award for last season with 15 clean sheets, sharing the award with Arsenal’s Wojciech Szczesny.

Thibaut Courtois has taken his place this season, following a thoroughly impressive loan-stint with Atletico Madrid, where he helped them win the La Liga title with a huge 19 clean sheets in his 38 league appearances.
