Arsenal have Petr Cech’s replacement lined up – it’s a surprising choice


Arsenal are set to bring in a new goalkeeper as Petr Cech’s career starts to wind down.

The 34-year-old former Czech republic international may yet stay at the Emirates, but he’ll be the club’s second choice next season.

And the Daily Mail report that Arsene Wenger has already identified a surprise candidate to replace him – England stopper Joe Hart.

The Manchester City goalkeeper is on loan at Torino until the summer, but he isn’t expected to make his stint in Serie A permanent.

Liverpool are also reportedly interested as Jurgen Klopp has little confidence in either Simon Mignolet or Loris Karius.

Both clubs could do with a player who has experience of winning the Premier League, Hart achieving that feat twice with City.


His plight under Pep Guardiola has brought confusion, particularly as the Sky Blues don’t seem to have anyone better in mind and Claudio Bravo has since been dropped.

Hart is keen to play in England again because of his position in the national team, as he fears staying abroad could see him drop out of Gareth Southgate’s plans.

If Arsenal do miss out on him, that may affect Wojciech Szczesny’s future, with the Polish international yet to be told whether he’s in the club’s plans.
