David Ospina has expressed his desire to play more first-team football with the Gunners.

The Colombian international has been used as the club’s Cup and Champions League goalkeeper since the arrival of Petr Cech from Chelsea in 2015.

Speaking to Colombian website Win Sports, the 28-year-old was asked about his playing situation at Arsenal:

“I think today I would like to play more regularly at Arsenal which I have not been lately. That part is very important [for me] and it is something that has long been at the back of my mind.”

The keeper joined the Gunners from Nice for a reported £3million in July 2014, and made 23 appearances in all competitions during his first season at the club.

The arrival of Cech however limited his game time with just four appearances in the Premier League last campaign and zero in the league so far this season. Ospina has however played all six matches in the Champions League along with two FA Cup ties but it looks as if he wants to be the number one keeper once more which could suggest a summer departure from the Emirates.
