He may have been the target of much criticism from the Arsenal fans and football media in general for a nightmare game in the Champions League against Olympiacos, but David Ospina bounced back well and ended last season having regained the respect and admiration of Gooners everywhere.
And he followed that up with a fine Copa America tournament in goal for Colombia, so it is understandable that Arsene Wenger wants to keep him at the club. The problem, however, is whether Ospina himself is happy to play second fiddle to our Czech Republic international Petr Cech rather than seeking a transfer to a club where he would be the first choice keeper.
There are signs that Wenger may have persuaded him to stay with Arsenal, though, with the main one being a report in The Sun claiming that our Poland international Wojciech Szczesny is set for a second season on loan in Serie A with the Italian club Roma.
The report also says that the loan deal will include the option for Roma to sign him on a permanent basis, so it seems like Wenger is ready to let the long term Arsenal star go and I do not think he would do that if he was not confident that we had a top quality back up for the former Chelsea man.
So is it ciao to Szczesny while Ospina stays?
