Petr Cech will tell Chelsea that he wants to move to Arsenal this summer to keep his family in London, according to reports.

The Blues goalkeeper looks set to leave the club after 11 years, and a report from Goal.com claims that he wants to stay in London with his two children at school in the capital.

The Czech Republic international has one year remaining on his contract, with the Blues hoping to get at least £10m for his services.

The 33-year-old Cech is currently with Chelsea on their post-season tour of Australia, and answered when recently asked if he had played his last game for the club: "I don't know."

"I will fly back now and join the national team. Then when the season is over I will weigh up my options and decide.

"I won’t think about it now. When the decision is made I will tell you.

"At the moment it’s all just speculation. I’m not even thinking about it.

"I'm just going back to join the national team and then I will think about it."
