Arsenal goalkeeper to hold talks over future with the club


Arsenal’s backup goalkeeper, David Ospina will have talks with Arsene Wenger at the end of the season to sort out his long-term future at the club, according to Steve stammers of the Daily Mirror

The Colombian international has become Arsenal’s first-team choice for the Champions League games and will once again be between the sticks for the game against Basel on Tuesday night. Ospina had agreed with Wenger over the summer that he would be the goalkeeper for Arsenal’s European and FA Cup games, while Cech would remain the first choice ‘keeper in the Premier League.

At 28-years-old and with crucial World Cup qualifying games ahead, however, Ospina feels he needs more first-team action. Although it is doubtful that he would move in January ,with Arsenal progressing through to the knockout stages of the Champions League and with the FA Cup yet to play, Ospina could well make a move away in the summer. 

Besiktas had been linked with a move for him last summer but the Colombian decided to stay, but come the summer, the allure of increased playing time may be too much for him to reject another move away from Arsenal.
