Ray Parlour has told former club Arsenal to stump up the £20 million needed to land out-of-favour Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech.

The veteran, 32, has been usurped as the Blues’ number one for the first time in his 11-year stint at Stamford Bridge this season as Thibaut Courtois continues to impress.

Consequently, Cech is thought to be considering his future after growing frustrated with a lack of first-team action, with Jose Mourinho reportedly slapping a hefty price-tag on him.

David Ospina has been the Gunners’ preferred choice between the sticks since January after Wojciech Szczesny was dropped, but Parlour hopes to see the Czech switch to North London this summer.

“He’d be a terrific signing and provide so much experience,” the former Arsenal and England midfielder told Sports Mole.

“He’s got some stern competition at Chelsea. He’s played in some big, big games and a move across London would be great. Whether Chelsea would let him go, I don’t know.

“He’s still a young goalkeeper really and has plenty of years ahead of him. Someone like Petr Cech would be a great signing for Arsenal.”
