Ospina Set For Napoli Medical

Ospina Set For Napoli Medical

Arsenal has reached an agreement with Napoli for goalkeeper David Ospina.

The initial season-long loan does reportedly have an additional clause to buy the player outright should they wish.

De Laurentiis told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli: "There are four in contention: Ochoa, Mignolet, Ospina and [Ciprian] Tatarusanu". By the afternoon the deal was done. Campbell has been confirmed as moving to the newly-promoted serie A side Frosinone, and it has just been confirmed that Ospina is in Napoli having a medical now.


While current Arsenal FC #1 Petr Cech Twitter feuds with the former club of the man who could eventually supplant him, another Gunners goalkeeper, David Ospina, is also making news.

Napoli have been searching all summer for a replacement for Pepe Reina who left at the end of last season. A deal for Liverpool's Simon Mignolet appears to be off with the arrival of Ospina.

It is understood Emery has made it clear to Ospina he does not have a long-term future at the club, slipping to third choice keeper after Leno joined from Bayer Leverkusen. Despite being a Colombia global Ospina is believed to have taken on French citizenship during a six-year spell at Nice. He's been a good servant for Arsenal but it's time for everyone to move on.
