Having signed Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen, it will be interesting to see who will be Arsenal’s number one goalkeeper next season.
It is doubtful the German will be coming to sit on the Bench and Petr Cech will certainly not want to relish handing over his starting spot to the young German. Neither would David Ospina want to become the third choice.
One of Cech and Ospina will certainly have to leave the club as it is doubtful that Arsenal will keep all the of them at the club. In fact, it is not advisable.
It is near impossible to keep three top class keepers happy at a club. Hence it is not a surprise that both Cech and Ospina have been linked with moves away from the club.
Cech was first linked with a move to Napoli but that seems dead now. But new reports have emerged claiming that David Ospina could be on his way out of the club. According to the latest reports, Arsenal and Boca juniors have reached an agreement that will see Ospina sign for the South American club if he can agree on personal terms with them.
This much is being reported by South America media outlet in El Dia who reckons an agreement was reached in the last few hours between Arsenal and Boca juniors.
The report in El Dia reads thus, “The leadership of Boca has reached in the last hours an agreement with his peers of the Arsenal of England for the pass of Colombian goalkeeper David Ospina. While in Argentina they give almost the loan to the entity of La Ribera, from England they remain hermetic, beyond that the Arsenal has just hired the goalkeeper Bernd Leno.” (As translated by Google)
The deal according to the report will be a loan deal. What remains to be seen is if Ospina will be open to such a move or whether he will prefer to remain in Europe.
Whatever the case may be, Arsenal must get rid of one of Cech and Ospina and promote Martinez to the first team as the third choice.
