Arsenal agree deal to sign David Ospina


Arsenal have made a strong statement of intent this summer by capturing Barcelona winger Alexis Sanchez. After signing a world class player, Arsene Wenger has now shifted his attention towards bolstering other areas of the pitch, especially the goal keeping department.


Reports emerged last week that Arsenal are showing a keen interest in Colombian goal keeper David Ospina and are closing in on securing a £3.2m deal for the Nice goalkeeper. Ospina was one of the star performers for Colombia in the recently concluded 2014 FIFA World Cup and would be a good addition to the Gunners team. 

According to reports from NiceMatin, OGC Nice have agreed a deal with Arsenal to sign David OspinaThe report say the Colombian goal keeper is set to complete a €4m move in the coming hours/which we interpret as near future, where he is set to compete with first choice Wojciech Szczesny. 

The 25-year-old has been playing for Nice since 2008 and has made over 175 appearances for the French club.

  1. I we b so happy if d deal 4 Ospina was concluded nd were announced imminiently nd I we be expecting more of it 4 Arsene Wenger wit my expectation on mario Baloteli nd Kedira

  2. Is Khedira good enough for Arsenal? I am not so sure.

    Balotelli has looked good in small clubs until now, but is he ready to step up to a huge club like Arsenal? I am not so sure.

    Is Bender good enough for a place in the Arsenal midfield? It will be tough to get picked before our curren players.

    Osprina looks good on Youtube because of all the videos showing his saves. The thing is, you can make Bendtner look like Messi is these videos. The videos do not show trhe 20x misses made by Bentner and the many goals Osprina has let in the net.

    I would buy Osprina as long as he promises to behave when in London. He needs to be a good boy.

      Men, David Ospina is a full professional, his compromise with the team is superior, i see Szczesny level in the past years and David Ospina with the help of a high level defensive system at Arsenal, would be a star in the short future.

  3. Ospina is one of the best keeppar in 2014 fifa worldcup,i will like to se him and another good divender.

  4. Very good one ?
