Arsenal stopper, Petr Cech, has opened up on his future at the Emirates, claiming he still hasn’t received an offer from abroad. The Czech Republic international, 36, will be out of contract this summer and is currently assessing his options.
He has been reduced to cup appearances after losing his Premier League place to summer signing Bernd Leno. Arsenal boss, Unai Emery, also has not revealed anything concrete regarding Cech’s contract situation.

Following Arsenal’s FA Cup win over Blackpool, the Spaniard said: “I don’t know now, it has to do with the club and the player,” the Spaniard told reporters, as reported by Football.London.
“He started this season very well, very good behaviour, commitment and also performance. And then when he had his injuries, he recovered his position on the bench.”
“I am very happy with him. We will speak in the future with the player but at the moment I want his focus to be the same in every training and match.”
Cech, one of the five senior Arsenal players who are free to negotiate with other clubs, insists he hasn’t received any offers.
Unai Emery is unsure whether Petr Cech will still be an Arsenal player when the January transfer window slams shut.

“I would like to stay but we are in January,” Cech told the Evening Standard.
“The season is long so you never know what will happen. I don’t feel stressed or pressed about when we sit and when we talk. I just do my job and in the end we can easily sit and discuss it, so we will see. I haven’t [had an offer yet] and after the transfer window we will talk and see where we are.”
