Cech moved to Arsenal from Chelsea on Monday after spending 11 years at Stamford Bridge, during which time the Blues won four Premier League titles, the Champions League, Europa League, four FA Cups and three League Cups.

With Arsenal only having won three FA Cups during that same period of time, Cech is ready to help the Gunners become champions of England once again. 

"I have a lot of personal motivation and ambition and the club definitely matches it," he told the club's official website. "It is an exciting time for me — it is a project where Arsenal fans and the club have been waiting for the Premier League title and this is a chance for me to bring my experience and my little extra to the team and we can possibly achieve that."

The 33-year-old goalkeeper feels that having over a decade of experience playing in the Premier League will come in handy as he knows what to expect from each team in the league.

"I believe that the Premier League is the best league in the world and, having played in the Premier League for such a long time, it is to my advantage and I know what to expect," he said. "This year I will be at a different club but I think it can be a big advantage for me that I'm settled, I know what to expect in almost every ground in England with the style that is played.

"It is a great challenge to be playing against the best players in the world and I always wanted to play in the Premier League and be a part of this league."

Cech revealed that one of the main reasons why he signed with Arsenal is that he sees eye to eye with manager Arsene Wenger. 

"To have an opportunity to continue in a team that has the motivation to challenge for the title and challenge the best teams was a challenge for me and I have to say that once I spoke to Arsene Wenger about the ambitions and motivations this club has, my decision was clear because I wanted to be a part of it," he said. 

the shot-stopper firmly believes that Arsenal can be more competitive in the Champions League next season after the Gunners were knocked out by Monaco on the away goals rule in the round of 16 last season.

"I believe I will find a team that wants to be successful and wants to challenge the best in Europe," he said. "It is an exciting project for me."
