Chelsea are willing to let one of their goalkeeping coaches, Christophe Lollichon, join Arsenal if the North London club want to take him, according to The Times (subscription required).
Lollichon worked with new Arsenal signing Petr Cech back in his Rennes days and joined Chelsea in 2007 after José Mourinho and his staff had departed. Now it seems the club are ok with Lollichon following Cech across London.
Reports have previously suggested that Arsenal were keen on bringing Lollichon to their Colney training ground, but Chelsea initially resisted. Now it seems the West London club have relaxed their stance - opening the door for an Arsenal approach.
Arsenal are yet to replace goalkeeper coach Tony Roberts who joined Swansea City last month, which hints that a deal for Lollichon is on the cards. It would also make perfect sense for Cech and perhaps help him settle even quicker than he already seems to be doing.
