This season, Arsenal have had nothing short of a goalkeeping crisis. Wojciech Szczesny has been dropped after holding the number one position for four years, while David Ospina spent most of the early part of the campaign injured.

As for third-choice stopper Damian Martinez, well, he's never really looked like he would be able to nail down the starting spot in Arsene Wenger's line-up either.

Since the start of 2015, Arsenal have looked to Ospina as their goalkeeper in the Premier League following two calamitous errors from Szczesny earned them defeat at Southampton.

Ospina boasts the highest win rate of any goalkeeper in the Premier League era who has played more than ten games. One thing should be noted though, he's played only 14 games in an Arsenal team who have been on their best run of form for a decade.

However, Arsenal fans, including myself, feel entirely confident with Ospina in goal as Chelsea fans do with Thibaut Courtois and Manchester United fans do with David de Gea. This however, could all be about to change this summer. 

Arsenal are set to bid for Chelsea legend Petr Cech, with the 32-year-old keen on a move to the Emirates Stadium.

Wenger is said to be looking at a top quality goalkeeper to help guide the Gunners to the domestic title next season. 

The signing of Cech would be a massive coup for Arsenal, representing real intention to go on and push for major honours domestically and in Europe.
