Petr Cech says that talking with Arsene Wenger convinced him Arsenal was the club where he could continue to meet his footballing ambitions.
The Czech international has won plenty of trophies with Chelsea, but says he still has a big desire to achieve things in the game and feels that the Gunners can help him do that.
Although he’s now 33, that’s still quite young in the life of a goalkeeper, and Cech is delighted to continue his career in England with us.
“I’m really excited about joining Arsenal football club,” he told the official site, “and can’t wait to join up for pre-season.
“I have the same commitment to football, the same motivation and the same hunger for success as I had at the beginning of my career, and I love the challenges brought by the top quality players you face while playing in the Premier League.
“When Arsène Wenger spoke to me about his ambitions for this club, and how he saw me as part of this team, the decision was clear.”
