Arsenal hold talks with David Ospina

Published Add your comment

Arsenal have entered talks with Colombia and Nice star David Ospina as the look to replace Lukasz Fabianski, reports RMC.

The Gunners have been left with just one recognised goalkeeper in their squad after Emiliano Viviano's loan spell expired and Fabianski left for Swansea on a free transfer.

Although Arsene Wenger is keen to sign a right-back, a central midfielder and a striker, he knows that finding a goalkeeper to challenge Wojciech Szczesny should be treated as a matter of urgency.

It is for that reason that Arsenal have have held initial talks with Nice star David Ospina, who will shortly travel to Brazil with the Colombian national squad.

At only 25-years-old, Ospina has already conjured an impressive 43-caps for his country and has seemingly caught Wenger's eye.

Szczesny is set to be Arsenal's No.1 next season, but Wenger knows he will need  quality back-up goalkeeper to keep the Polish international on his toes.

According to the French newspaper, Wenger has told the Colombian that he will be given plenty of chance to impress in the Premier League and the Champions League.
