Nice manager Claude Puel confirms David Ospina has joined Arsenal
- July 26, 2014
It will come as no surprise when David Ospina is officially announced as an Arsenal player.
The Colombia World Cup goalkeeper has been heavily linked with Arsenal over the last few weeks and it is understood that the Gunners have agreed a fee with Ligue 1 side Nice.
Nice coach Claude Puel told Sky Sports on Saturday afternoon that a move for Ospina was done.
Sky Sports also quote Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger: “You know at the start Szczensy will be the No.1, then again we’ll be down to performances and, if Ospina shows that he is better, he will play.”
Some of the Twitter reaction on David Ospina’s imminent move to Arsenal can be seen below.
Must admit, I'd never heard of Ospina until the World Cup. His (ex) club manager says he can be Arsenal #1, describing him as 'magnifique'.

Only Gianluigi Buffon (81.1%) had a better saves to shots ratio than David Ospina (80.3%) in the top five leagues last season.
