Petr Cech’s agent says the goalkeeper remains fully focused on playing for Arsenal this season amid reports of a return to Chelsea, and insisted that no offers are on the table.
Arsenal signed Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen this summer to provide added competition for Cech, who was criticised for some uncharacteristic mistakes last season.
Reports have claimed Chelsea are interested in re-signing the goalkeeper, who left them for Arsenal in 2016, although David Ospina is widely considered more likely to be sold by the Gunners.
Cech’s agent Viktor Kolar downplayed talk of a potential move.
“It is always busy during every transfer window around Petr Cech, as a great Premier League person. However, he maximally focuses on the new season at Arsenal, no specific offer is available,” Kolar told ESPN FC.
Cech and Leno are both expected to be on the plane when Arsenal fly to Singapore on Sunday for two preseason matches against Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.
New head coach Unai Emery said last week that he has yet to decide which goalkeeper will be his No. 1.
