Ospina too expensive for Nantes


David Ospina will not be signing for Ligue 1 side Nantes despite the French side confirming an interest in the player.

France Football claimed earlier in the week that the Colombian was a transfer target for the Ligue 1 outfit, however, deputy general manager Franck Kita has revealed that Arsenal’s asking price is too high.

Nantes recently appointed Claudio Ranieri as their new coach and are embarking on something of a squad rebuild.

Speaking to L’Equipe about the approach, Kita said: “We asked for information, but it’s unfeasible for us.”

Ospina, who spent six years playing in France for Nice before joining Arsenal, has been heavily tipped to leave the Emirates this summer with clubs, including a number in Turkey, said to be keeping tabs on his situation.
