It is, of course, always good news for a football club, a manager and the fans when you get a player back from injury. Perhaps that is even more true of an Arsenal player than most because of the annual problems that we seem to have with the amount of players missing over the course of a season.
Having said that, I am not sure that there is all that much excitement or relief flowing through the Arsenal fans about the imminent return from the treatment room of David Ospina. Not only has the Colombian international failed to offer up a serious challenge to the club’s regular number one Petr Cech, Ospina seems to have gone backwards.
Maybe the double blooper he made to gift Paraguay two late goals that almost cost his country a place at the World Cup in Russia next summer affected the keeper’s confidence and maybe it does not help that he is still firmly behind Cech in the Arsenal pecking order, but he has certainly looked shaky this season.
So it is hardly a surprise to see an Arsenal transfer rumour reported by Metro saying that the Gunners have eyes on a keeper. The keeper in question is Peter Gulasci who currently plays in the German Bundesliga for Red Bull Leipzig.
With other clubs said to be interested, though, and with 36-year old Cech one injury away from causing Arsenal a huge problem, should Arsenal step up our interest and make this keeper or another a prime transfer target for January?
