Liverpool and Arsenal receive transfer blow as £10m target in talks with Besiktas

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech could be on the way to Turkey as Besiktas have become the latest club to be linked with his signature after his agent confirmed talks have taken place.

That will come as bad news to Arsenal and Liverpool fans as the Premier League rivals have both been linked with a £10 million move for the Czech Republic shot-stopper this summer.

Cech is set to leave Chelsea after 11 successful years as he is not willing to play second fiddle to Thibaut Courtois again next term.

He has been strongly linked with moves to Inter Milan, Paris Saint Germain, Liverpool and Arsenal but Jose Mourinho is not keen to sell him to direct Premier League rivals.

That could see Besiktas secure his signature as Cech’s agent, Viktor Kolar has confirmed the Blues star has received an offer from the Turkish side.

“We have been in contact with Besiktas, we are in talks. Turkey is a choice for Cech but we will decide when the league is over,” Kolar told Turkish website Fanatik.

Chelsea are expected to make a £2million move for relegated Queens Park Rangers ‘keeper Rob Green as they look to fill their English quota, though Green will have to accept a backup role if any move goes through.

Would Besiktas be a good move for Petr Cech? Should Chelsea sign Rob Green as backup to Courtois?
