Report: Arsenal goalkeeper to quit club in summer?

Arsenal Emirates

David Ospina could be set for an exit from the Emirates Stadium at the end of the season.

Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina will leave the Premier League title challengers in search of regular first-team football in the summer, according to the London Evening Standard.

The Colombian has been a largely peripheral figure since joining the club in 2014 from Nice, making just 23 appearances in all competitions.

He did enjoy a run as first choice stopper in the second half of last season, playing 18 Premier League games from January onwards and keeping eight clean sheets.

However, the arrival of Petr Cech as Arsene Wenger's undisputed number one has seen Ospina feature just four times in all competitions during the current campaign, failing to play a single minute in the league.

The Standard reports that this has understandably caused concerns for the 27-year-old about holding on to his place as Colombia number one, and he is thought to be set on leaving Arsenal in the summer.

The stopper will feel as though he deserves to be playing regular football, and with Cech unlikely to be dislodged, it is thought that the Gunners would be willing to part with their back-up 'keeper for around £5 million.

The paper goes on to claim that although clubs in Spain, Italy and Turkey are thought to be interested, Ospina would be open to staying in England.
