Arsenal's much-maligned goalkeeper David Ospina will face a big decision in the January transfer window as several clubs are interested in signing him on loan.

A report on MailOnline claims the Gunners have already received offers for the Colombian goalkeeper, who is looking at a season on the sidelines after his high-profile error against Olympiakos.

Arsene Wenger's selection policy was called into question after Ospina dropped the ball into his own net during a 3-2 Champions League defeat.

Fans and pundits alike were surprised to see Ospina start ahead of Petr Cech, but it later emerged that Wenger had promised the 2014 summer signing a certain amount of game time if he agreed to stay in north London.

However, having contributed to the disastrous loss to the Greek champions, Cech is expected to start Arsenal's next two group games, both of which are against German juggernauts Bayern Munich.

Game time

Ospina will still be given time in the Capital One Cup and will start their fourth round tie against Sheffield Wednesday later this month. He is also likely to be promised time in the FA Cup, which will start for Arsenal in early January.

But with a place in Colombia's national squad to maintain, Ospina may not want his first-team opportunities relying on Arsenal's domestic cup success.

Besiktas, Getafe, Genoa and Palermo have all been accredited with an interest, but Arsenal will have to sign a new goalkeeper, or recall Wojciech Szczesny from his loan spell at AS Roma, if Ospina does leave.
