Cape Town - Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech will be able to choose his next destination with a summer move to Arsenal looming. 

The Telegraph report that Cech will decide his next club when he feels his Chelsea days are over.

Jose Mourinho's decision to install Thibaut Courtois as the Blues number one has irked the 11-year Chelsea veteran.

The Blues manager is reluctant to let Cech leave this season and has dug his heels in further following Mark Schwarzer's move to Leicester City.

The 32-year-old goalkeeper will be able to leave the club at the end of the season with Arsenal leading the "race" to sign the experienced player.

Liverpool are reportedly interested in Cech with serious doubts about Simon Mignolet's abilities. 

Roma are also interested in Cech but Arsenal lead the race with Cech's family settled in London.

Arsene Wenger is a known admirer of the goalkeeper, who tried to sign the player before Chelsea secured a deal for him back in 2004.
