Chelsea man Arsenal medical sooner than expected

by Nia Griffiths

After it was reported on Thursday that Petr Cech’s medical at Arsenal wouldn’t happen until next week, conflicting reports have emerged on Twitter that he is in fact having it today (Friday 26th June).

David Ornstein from BBC Sport Tweeted on Friday:

So what is the truth?

I have no idea. At the moment, there’s new information, often inaccurate, being released about this transfer constantly. I’d hazard a guess as to say Ornstein wouldn’t state it so confidently if there were any doubts but I’m sure he’s done so in the past and been wrong.

Either way, by the end of the day we’ll have a better idea.
