BBC: Cech to undergo medical today ahead of Arsenal transfer

The deal inches even closer to completion.

David Ornstein, who is usually fairly well connected and effectively releases information that the Arsenal Press Office wants known by the general public, is reporting that Arsenal have agreed a fee with Chelsea and personal terms with Petr Cech, who is undergoing a medical today. Ornstein does not report the fee, and nor will Arsenal disclose the fee when the transfer is eventually confirmed, but it is rumoured to be in the region of £11m, which will comfortably be the most Arsenal have ever spent on a goalkeeper.

There continues to be little news on who will be the fall guy when Cech arrives, but David Ospina has been casually linked with moving to Fenerbahce in some serious newspapers, such as the Guardian, and perhaps that move will come to fruition after both Cech's signing is confirmed and Ospina returns from Copa America duty, where Colombia play Argentina later tonight in the quarter-final.
