Arsenal career all but over for this man

David Ospina’s career looks all but over at Arsenal after the Gunners announced the signing of Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen.

Unai Emery snapped up the 26-year-old German goalkeeper for just under £20million earlier this week and has undoubtedly been bought in to either challenge or take Petr Cech’s place in the Arsenal starting line-up next season, leaving Ospina, potentially, in the wilderness once again.

Ospina is currently in Russia with the Colombian squad for the World Cup, but his future at Arsenal has been in doubt ever since the Cech checked in from Chelsea in 2015. Despite being Arsenal’s cup competition goalkeeper for the past couple of seasons, Ospina has been the club’s second-choice shot-stopper and will once again be considering his position at the club duo to Leno’s arrival.

The 29-year-old, who made just five Premier League appearances last season, has attracted interest from several clubs around Europe and in the Premier League in the past, including Everton, Fenerbahce and Marseille and will be hoping to impress potential suitors during the World Cup tournament.
