Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech is free to talk to other clubs says his agent.


The Blues stopper wants to leave Stamford Bridge for regular first-team action after spending the season as back-up to Thibaut Courtois.


Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has been given permission to talk to other clubs, according to his agent.

Cech, 32, has spent the current campaign playing second fiddle to Thibaut Courtois with the champions and is resigned to leaving Stamford Bridge in search of regular first-team action.

He has made just six Premier League appearances this term following Courtois' arrival from Atletico Madrid last summer.

Arsenal are interested in taking the Czech international across London to the Emirates Stadium, although the Gunners fear Jose Mourinho will block a move as he doesn't want to strengthen a rival.

Paris Saint-Germain and Besiktas have both also been linked with moves, which would see Cech end his 11-year association with English football.

And Cech's agent, Viktor Kolar, says that the Blues have given him permission to discuss a move with interested parties.

"Petr [Cech] has a valid contract with his current club, however, I can confirm that we have been permitted by Chelsea to negotiate with interested parties," Kolar told TalkSport.

"Petr has confirmed his interest to play regularly at a top club."

Kolar's words come days after he stated that Cech had held talks with Besiktas.
