Petr Cech will seriously consider a move to the Emirates, if Arsenal make, or indeed had made, a bid for the goalkeeper, according to the Chelsea player's agent.

Ever since Thibaut Courtois became the undisputed number one goalkeeper for Chelsea, Cech's future has been thrown into doubt with the marquee goalkeeper having to warm the bench for much of the first half of the season.

While Jose Mourinho has insisted he would like to keep Cech at the club, at least until the end of the season, it will be difficult for the Premier League side to do so if the player insists on leaving during the January transfer window, with Liverpool thought to be the most interested in the Czech Republic international's signature.

However, Cech's agent Viktor Kolar believes it will be difficult for his client to push through a move next month, with a transfer away from Chelsea now looking like it will have to wait until the summer.

"It's unlikely Petr will leave Chelsea in the January transfer window," Kolar was quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror. "The club and coach want to keep him to help win the title."

Kolar, though, suggested, that stance might change if Arsenal make a bid. "I think Arsenal should have made an offer to him, then I think Petr would be considering it."

Cech's agent also revealed Liverpool have shown an interest, with a deal looking likely for the summer.

"Liverpool need to strengthen their position in goal and they know Petr will be available in the summer," he added.

Real Madrid, though, are not in the running for the signature of Cech, with the European champions saying they do not need an experienced goalkeeper at the moment, even if it is one of Cech's undoubted class.

"We've been in contact with Real Madrid, but they don't need a keeper just now," said Kolar.

Wojciech Szczesny, even if he is prone to an odd mistake or two, has the ability to become a long-term number one for Arsenal, and with Wenger buying David Ospina, another goalkeeper capable of taking up the number one mantle, in the summer, it is unlikely that the manager will look to make a bid for Cech, be that in January or the summer.

Arsenal's transfer priorities, at the moment, lie in the central defensive and defensive midfield department.
