Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina believes there are some very good goalkeepers in the Premier League, reports the Daily Star.

The Gunners ace, who signed for the north London outfit after impressing for Colombia at this past summer's World Cup, believes the trio of David de Gea, Hugo Lloris and Joe Hart are all great goalkeepers. 

Ospina, of course, has been proving his credentials a the Gunners in recent time after replacing Wojciech Szczesny as the side's No.1 'keeper, but it appears that he wants to show his worth over a long period of time.

Top trio

Speaking to reporters, the Arsenal man said: “There are some very good goalkeepers in the Premier League.

"There’s De Gea, Hugo Lloris, Hart - they’re great keepers who’ve proved their worth over the course of many seasons and are continuing to do so now.

As well as speaking about stars at Manchester United and Co., Ospina has also insisted that Szczesny and Emiliano Martinez are fine 'keepers. 

He continued by saying: “At Arsenal we have very good goalkeepers in the shape of Wojciech Szczesny and Emiliano Martinez. The Premier League has always had top-quality goalkeepers.”

There's no doubt about it, Arsenal fans will be hoping that Ospina's able to emulate the likes of De Gea and Co. over the course of the campaign. 

While the likes of Manchester United and Tottenham have had steady 'keepers over the course of the season, the Gunners have struggled with Szczesny failing to find his best form for the club. 

Arsenal dream

And Ospina has admitted that signing for Arsenal was a dream come true, insisting that he's determined to take his opportunity at the club. 

He finished by saying: “I always watched the Premier League when I was in Colombia because that was one of the leagues they showed on television.

“I see it as a big responsibility to come to a great club like Arsenal - it’s a dream come true. Now it’s my job to make the most of this opportunity that’s come my way, thanks to God and thanks to everyone here at the club."

The 'keeper could be set for his biggest test yet between the sticks this weekend, as the Gunners prepare to travel to White Hart Lane to take on north London rivals Tottenham.

A clean sheet against Spurs on Saturday would no doubt stand him in good stead ahead of the final few months of the season.
