Since the arrival of Bernd Leno at Arsenal, it was obvious that either David Ospina or Petr Cech would have to leave to make room, and Ospina’s agent made it clear that it was the Colombian that would be leaving, although he admitted had turned down an offer from Boca Juniours so that he can stay in Europe.
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.
But now he has backtracked and said it will be very difficult to find Ospina a new club. Lucas Jaramillo has now said that his wantaway client is likely to be priced out of the market. The agent said: “David has had an excellent World Cup, it has been very important for him.
“It is not a lie for anyone to say that he finds himself uncomfortable at Arsenal.
“There are several clubs interested in David, but leaving Arsenal is not easy.
“They’re a team that pays well and asks a lot for the player and we must add that he has a contract for two more years.
“The priority is Europe, but as I say, we have to wait.”
We all know that Arsenal overpays average players, and has done for many years which is why we find it so hard to get rid of our deadwood, but this could just be a ploy from the agent to get the Gunners to reduce their demands.
There is certainly no point in having three top class keepers (and Macey!) at the club next season….
