Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech's representatives have dismissed recent speculation regarding their client's imminent move to Arsenal, claiming that no deal has been agreed with any club over a summer transfer.
The Czech Republic international has made it clear that he wants to leave the club after spending an entire season as backup to Jose Mourinho's preferred first choice Thibaut Courtois.
A Sky Sports report suggested that Cech had agreed personal terms with the Gunners, with just a deal on the transfer fee between the two clubs pending.
However, the 33-year-old stopper, who is managed by Sports PR Company, has dismissed the reports and insisted that no deal has as yet been agreed between the player and any interested club.
"As we told you, No transfer deal has been done yet for @PetrCech - as soon as [there is] any news @PetrCech will confirm," the Sports PR Company said on Twitter.
Mourinho is reluctant to let the goalkeeper leave the club, and he was especially not keen on selling to a direct rival in the Premier League. But Cech maintained that he preferred to remain in London, where his family is well settled.
Meanwhile, Arsenal's first choice 'keeper David Ospina has hinted that a deal for Cech is imminent after revealing that he could be on his way out of the club with his agents reportedly in talks with Fenerbahce.
The Colombian international, who is currently with his national team at the Copa America in Chile, only joined the north London club last summer from Nice and has gone on to establish himself as the undisputed number one under Arsene Wenger.
"They [Fenerbahce] are dealing with my agent. At the moment the only thoughts I have are for Colombia. I will not betray my team," Ospina was quoted as saying, by Turkish publication Haber Turk.
