Colombia goalkeeper Ospina to sign for Arsenal in £3.1m move

Ospina

Colombia goalkeeper David Ospina will sign for Arsenal for a fee in the region of £3m.

The 25-year-old was one of Colombia’s star players during their run to the World Cup quarter-final and has been identified as a suitable replacement for Lukasz Fabianski whose contract expired last month.

Signing back-up for current No.1 Wojciech Szczesny is a top priority for Gunners boss Arsene Wenger after the departure of Fabianski while Emiliano Viviano’s loan spell with the club also finished in May.

Ospina, whose contract expires at Nice next summer, has agreed personal terms with Arsenal while both sides have also reportedly agreed on a fee which is expected to be around £3million.

Former Atlético Nacional shot stopper Ospina, renowned for his phenomenal reflexes and athleticism, will compete with Szczesny for the no.1 spot at Arsenal when he arrives at the club.

He made 29 league appearances last season and his efforts helped Nice avoid relegation on the final day of last season.
