Arsenal have apparently agreed a deal to sell David Ospina to Fenerbahce, but are we happy with Petr Cech as number one? The former Chelsea shot-stopper has been immense over the years in the Premier League, and has a number of records to show for it, but Cech has come under criticism this season.
The 34 year-old come under pressure for a string of bad displays, highlighted by his destructive performance against his former club where he was at fault for at least two of the three goals, and there are now question marks over whether his age is taking it’s toll on him.
He has previously recovered following imperfect seasons with the Blues, but does his age mean that we cannot rely on a such a resurgence from Petr next year?
David Ospina has been a worthy back-up since joining the club from Nice three years ago, and was somewhat unlucky to lose his place to Cech on his arrival from our London rivals, after six months of superb performances when displacing Wojciech Szczesny as number one.
The Colombian is now said to have agreed a move to Fenerbahce this summer, in a £6 Million deal, having grown frustrated with his lack of first-team football, and with his place in his international team at risk ahead of the World Cup tournament in 14 months time.
Szczesny is currently on loan with Roma, and is supposedly of interest to a few clubs in the coming window, but with Ospina supposedly going, and with Cech struggling, he may be needed at the Emirates.
Arsene Wenger has previously put his trust in the Pole, but with pressure on our place inside the top four, his return to our first-team may prove too risky.
Would you trust in any of our current senior trio to kick-off the new season in goal? How about Martinez? Do we need a new number one?
