Arsenal Keen On Summer Move For Petr Cech Replacement 

Petr Cech Replacement

Arsenal are eager for a summer move for Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas as they seek a replacement for the departing Petr Cech, according to Plaza Deportiva.

Valencia Brazilian goalie Neto is also on Arsenal’s radar as manager Unai Emery looks for a quality cover and competition for Bernd Leno.

The 32-year-old helped played his last match for Real on Sunday with manager Zinedine Zidane ready to stick with Thibaut Courtois and Luca Zidane as his choices in goal for next season.

Navas helped Los Blancos to three Champions Leagues and one La Liga title during his five-year stint at the Santiago Bernabeu, and he sure will be a fine addition to Emery’s side given his vast experience.

Could Navas be keen to play second fiddle to Leno at the Emirates Stadium? And that is also why a move for Neto looks very unlikely.

The Brazilian has a £70million release clause in his Valencia deal, and with the position not a priority for Emery, moving for a cheaper and reasonably priced option makes sense.

The Europa League final against Chelsea will be Cech’s last game for the Gunners and landing a replacement of his quality could be herculean for the North Londoners.
