There was always going to be one of Petr Cech or David Ospina leaving Arsenal this summer after the arrival of Bernd Leno, and Cech has already announced that he had turned down Napoli he was going to play out the last year of his contract with the Gunners.
Ospina was not saying anything, although it has been made clear that despite having an offer from Boca Juniors, he intended to stay in Europe to continue his career. Now his agent has stated that he could still go back to South America in a tweet…..
Repre. #Ospina en @CrackDeportivo: "David tiene contrato por dos años más con Arsenal pero hay un arquero, así que puede ser un ciclo cumplido y de no haber opciones en Europa, Boca es una gran opción porque está dentro de los 10 equipos más grandes del mundo". pic.twitter.com/UJ8FEuTA04

This is translated as…. David has a contract for two more years with Arsenal but there is a new keeper, so it can be a cycle completed and if there are no options in Europe, Boca is a great option because it is among the 10 largest teams in the world.
His agent also said that “The option of Boca had already played but now it is not easy for the economic or for a club like Boca to pay that much for a goalkeeper. He would like to go to Boca but this is not the time, we are focused on continuing in Europe. ”
So it looks like David will definitely be on his way, and probably to Turkey as he has been chased by Fenerbahce for quite a few seasons now. But it looks like Boca of Argentina will be his plan B (or C) if nothing comes about in Europe….
