I’m calling it right here, right now.*
Arsenal signing world-class goalkeeper Petr Cech from Chelsea is the move that will lead to their eventual Premier League triumph.
Maybe they won’t win the title this season, for reigning champs Chelsea look too strong. But perhaps next.
Arsenal’s other top goalkeepers, Wojciech Szczęsny and David Ospina, are excellent. But Cech is a step above. He is more consistent than Szczęsny and commands his box better than Ospina.
This is the kind of signing that, along with a strong defensive midfielder, will give Arsenal the defensive fortifications to finally match their attacking prowess.
(*I am fully aware that as an Arsenal supporter and a life-long goalkeeper, this analysis may be colored by my emotions.)
