While most players would be happy to be turning out regularly in the Champions League, that competition and the FA Cup have been Ospina’s only pathways into the first-team this season, and at 28 he will want to be playing week in, week out at senior level.
So what chance that Everton manager Ronald Koeman makes a move for the experienced Colombian?
After all, back in January 2016 the Daily Mail reported that Everton were keen on bringing Ospina to Goodison Park but that Arsenal were reluctant to sanction a deal for their second-choice stopper.
Despite Joel Robles’ impressive form, it would be no surprise if Everton moved for a new ‘keeper this summer and Ospina’s experience and apparent desire to make up for lost time would make him the perfect candidate.
Everton have impressed with their recent transfer business and while the Toffees are likely to be linked with plenty more goalkeepers over the summer, they would be hard pressed to find one with Premier League and international experience who would be available for a cut-price fee and who could still have his best years ahead of him.
