Editor's note: It turns out that this Instagram is not, in fact, the official account of Rosicky. Sorry for the mistake.

Need another sign that Petr Cech is heading to Arsenal? I don't either. That said, Petr's international teammate, Tomas Rosicky, posted the following message on Instagram, welcoming the Czech number one to his new club.

Welcome to #Arsenal Petr Cech.

It's hard to imagine that Rosicky would be sending this message without knowing something about the situation, which is bad news for those of us hoping to see Cech go somewhere less...well...less like Arsenal. Gross, and highly unfortunate, isn't it?

I suppose this means it's probably time to just cross our fingers and hope that Chelsea have extracted as much of a transfer fee from Wenger's side as possible, and maybe even unsettled a Gunners' player or two in the process. It will be awfully sad to see big Pete go, and a bit disturbing to see him playing for Arsenal, but hopefully, he's both happy and well paid for his work.
