Report: Ospina angling for summer departure

Arsenal 6-0 Ludogorets

Things are going from bad to worse at Arsenal with news that David Ospina is eyeing a move away from the club this summer.

The Times (£) are reporting that the Colombian number one is frustrated at his lack of playing time, despite being the designated cup keeper.

Ospina has played in all the Champions League games this season, as well as the FA Cup ties until this point, but has yet to make a single appearance in the Premier League.

Petr Cech is the man for domestic competition, and there are even suggestions this morning that he’s fed up without any European involvement.

It wouldn’t be any kind of surprise if Ospina wanted to go. He’s first choice for his country, and surely wants to be playing regular football at his age. The decision to give him the cup games feels like something of a sop to keep him happy.

Perhaps what Arsenal might consider – and bear with us here, this is a bit left-field – is finding a goalkeeper that’s so good there’s no question about who is going to play in the big games.

A revolutionary concept, but it might jut work.
