Chelsea goalkeeping coach Christophe Lollichon does not believe the club will look favourably upon the idea of him following Petr Cech to Arsenal, but says he is unaware if the possibility has yet been discussed.

As confirmed by BBC Sport, the latter is believed to have undergone a medical on 26 June after negotiating personal terms ahead of a summer switch to the Emirates Stadium that will allow him to play regular Premier League football once again next season.

Cech, who has won a plethora of silverware during his 11-year association with Chelsea, was widely expected to move on during the next transfer window having been demoted to second-choice 'keeper following Thibaut Courtois' return from a lengthy but hugely beneficial loan spell at Atletico Madrid.

While doubts were initially raised as to the likelihood of the 33-year-old being permitted to join one of the club's key rivals, the deal now looks set to be announced over the coming days with Sky Sports claiming last week that a £10.9m ($17.1m) fee for his services had been agreed.

Lollichon has worked closely with Cech since joining Chelsea in November 2007 and also coached the player at former club Rennes.

As such, The Mirror has previously speculated that Arsenal may want the experienced Frenchman to accompany his long-time student to North London this summer.

Former Republic of Ireland international Gerry Peyton has been the Gunners' primary goalkeeping coach since 2003, yet there could still be a vacancy available with Tony Roberts having departed to replace Javier Garcia on Garry Monk's staff at Swansea.

Lollichon, however, claims that no contact has been made while suggesting that Chelsea would perhaps be reluctant to allow him to join Arsenal too.

"For now, it does not matter. No contact has been made," he told French newspaper L'Equipe as reported by the London Evening Standard and Sport Witness.

"I do not know if this has been discussed between the two clubs, but I do not think Chelsea will be favourable."
