The report in ESPN says that Cech will assume some of the responsibilities held by Emenalo as they believe the return of the former shot-stopper will help in decision making as well as reassuring disillusioned fans about the club's broader direction.

The talks to hand Cech a role in Chelsea has been up several months ago but Chelsea aim to wait to the end of the season to step up their effort to bring the Czech Republic back to Stamford Bridge.

Cech played his last professional game for Arsenal against Chelsea in the Europa League where he conceded four goals against his former team in Baku.
