Serie A duo Genoa and Palermo are keeping tabs on Arsenal goalkeeper, David Ospina, according to The Daily Mail.
The Colombian international could be ready to quit the Emirates Stadium if Arsene Wenger drops him for the crunch tie with Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
Before the season started, Wenger must have promised Ospina regular first-team football in the cup competitions throughout the season, as he's started every cup game so far, including the two Champions League ties.

Sadly for Ospina, both European matches so far have ended in defeat for Arsenal, losing to both Dinamo Zagreb in Croatia and Olympiakos in North London.
The two defeats leave Arsenal bottom of their Champions League group on no points, meaning their next game is a must win - at home to Bayern Munich.
Ospina To Be Dropped?
According to Mail, Wenger is ready to drop Ospina for Petr Cech for the Munich game considering it's a must-win, and if that happens, the Colombian will consider quitting the club in the January transfer window.
Arsenal signed Cech in the summer from Chelsea, and since then, he's been made number-one for the Premier League, while the club then sent out Wojciech Szczesny on a season-long loan.
Ospina was kept by Wenger after the two had discussions about his game-time for the 2015/2016 season.
However, after the high-profile error against Olympiakos, he could face being dropped for the Munich game, which would push him over the edge in North London, according to reports.
Interest in Colombian
As well as Genoa and Palermo, Super Lig outfit Besiktas are monitoring Ospina's situation, as are La Liga side Getafe.
The quartet of interested clubs will continue to monitor the Colombia's situation in England ahead of the January transfer window.
If Ospina is dropped for the Bayern Munich match, the four interested parties may look to launch formal moves for him in the New Year.
However, they will face an uphill task of convincing Arsenal to sell considering it would leave them with just Cech as a recognised goalkeeper due to Szczesny being on loan at Roma.
