Ray Parlour has instructed Arsene Wenger to sign Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech, the London Evening Standard reports.
The big stopper is on his way out of the club in the summer and Arsenal have been made favourites to make a move and seal a deal.
“Whether Chelsea would let him go to one of their rivals is the burning question, but if Cech was available for the money reported — about £10million — it is a no-brainer. He would be first on my shopping list,” said Parlour on the Daily Mirror website.
“It is nothing against Ospina but when you look at the games Cech has played in and the trophies he has won, he’d be a great addition for Arsenal.
“If you are going to challenge for the league, you need a top quality goalkeeper which Cech is.”
