Petr Cech may be one of the greatest goalkeepers of the modern generation. However at the same time, he is well-past his peak as has been shown through his performances for Arsenal this season.

The 35-year-old has committed numerous errors which have cost the team valuable points and also which has been a cause of frustration to fans.

While Arsene Wenger has used Cech for Premier League games this season, he has reserved David Ospina as his first-choice keeper in Cup tournaments.

This is not an ideal position to be in as their should ideally be a first-choice keeper who represents the keeper in both Cup and League matches.

Cech is past his peak and it is perhaps about time that Arsenal start searching for a new shot-stopper.

It looks doubtful that Ospina will take over as number one. Despite Cech making a series of errors, he has never been promoted to being League starter and this is surely a sign that the club does not have faith in his abilities. Arsenal will likely have to look for a new keeper.

Below are options that they can consider.

2Gianluigi Donarumma

Gianluigi Donnarumma

Donarumma is expected to be the next Gianluigi Buffon and is one of the most highly-rated young talents in Europe.

Despite only being 19-years-old, he already boasts 93 League appearances for AC Milan after making his first-team debut at the age of just 16.

Donarumma keeps falling in and out of favour with the Milan hierarchy.  Though he is currently on good terms with them, this could change soon as Milan are a shadow of the team that they used to be.

They now fail to even qualify for the Champions League and if this trend continues, it is likely that Donarumma will look to leave the club soon. He is a quality keeper who should be playing in Europe’s Premier club competition.

Donarumma will however cost a high amount. He is widely expected to go on and become one of the world’s top keepers during the coming years and is already one of Italy’s top keepers.
