Having signed Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen for a club record fee of nearly €25m, Arsenal will dispense with one of their two senior goalkeepers this summer.
Right now it seems that David Ospina is the man most likely to make way, as Petr Cech was handed the number 1 shirt just a few weeks ago, signalling the club’s intention to keep him around.
However, the Colombian has been a mainstay of off-season departure rumours with links away every year since he joined in 2014 from Nice, and each time he’s stayed so there’s nothing 100% certain about this situation.
The 29 year old played in his country’s 3-0 win over Poland last night, and afterwards told the press he’d consider his options once the World Cup was over.
“I’m now fully concentrated on national team,” he said. “I know that Arsenal signed new goalkeeper, but I’m now focused on national team and after the World Cup I will think what to do next.”
As ever there is reported interest from Turkey, and with just a year left on his current deal he’d probably be available at a reasonable fee should the Gunners decide to cash in.
