With Arsenal presumably after any additional funds they can get their hands on this summer, fans may be thinking they’re on the wrong end of a steal with this potential deal.

Reports suggest that on-loan goalkeeper David Ospina is on the verge of a permanent move to Napoli – with the Serie A club hoping to bypass a clause in his contract that would allow them to buy the Colombian for just £2m – instead of paying Arsenal £3.1m.

For a ‘keeper of Ospina’s international status in today’s market, some fans see it as a disastrous deal from Arsenal’s point-of-view, with his market value of £3.6m currently belying his would-be transfer fee.
