Chelsea closing on Petr Cech replacement sooner than expected – Telegraph
Chelsea fans are still hurting over the loss of Petr Cech to their cross-town rivals Arsenal. However, Jose Mourinho is doing his best to compensate for the loss by bringing in £6million rated Asmir Begovic from Stoke.
Begovic has been regarded as one of the most reliable goal keepers in the league for last few seasons and would be the ideal fit to Chelsea’s setup.
Mourinho wants an able replacement for Cech who can deputise for Thibaut Courtious when needed. One of the key reasons why Cech left was his inability to cope up with being the number 2 at Chelsea.
Here is a competitive chart of Petr Cech (13-14) & Begovic (14-15) season:
Begovic clearly gives Chelsea what they will lack after losing Cech. Stoke have held firm on the asking fee and as per telegraph, Chelsea are willing to pay £6million for Begovic’s signing.
Chelsea are also held favorites for the signing of Turkish superstar Arda Turan from Atletico Madrid. Turan has publicly stated that he has been in contact with 4 different teams over his next transfer move and 3 of them are from English premier Legaue.
Chelsea have already successfully negotiated deals for Thibaut Courtious, Diego Costa and Filipe Luis. This has made the Blues a firm favorite to sign Turan this summer.
