Former Champions League finalists Arsenal have identified the man to take the gloves from veteran goalkeeper Petr Cech when he retires at the end of this season.

Petr Cech has already confirmed that he will hang his gloves at the end of an illustrious playing career this summer.

The Premier League legend has been a wonderful servant for both Chelsea and Arsenal since he came to England in 2004.

He won four league titles and the 2012 Champions League title at the expense of German champions Bayern Munich whom Chelsea beat on penalties.

Ex-Czech Republic international shot stopper signed for Arsenal from London rivals Chelsea in a £10 deal in 2015 and he was the first choice until earlier this season.

Cech has won two FA Cup titles with the Gunners.

Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope could be the man to replace Petr Cech at Arsenal when he retires.

England national team goalkeeper Pope has not been able to reclaim his first team spot at Burnley following his return from injury.

Tom Heaton and Joe Hart have been preferred this season by the Burnley manager Sean Dyche.

Nick Pope was instrumental to the Clarets’ run to Europa League qualification from the top flight of English football.
