ALMOST DONE – Arsenal Set To Complete Transfer Of £80,000-A-Week World Cup Q/finalist – Not Mohamed Elneny

 Arsenal are said to be open to letting second choice, David Ospina go this month. It has been a terrible turn of events for the Colombian in the first half of the season. After Arsenal signed Petr Cech from Chelsea last summer, it was expected that the 27-year-old will be the cup goalkeeper.

After a relatively good performance at the Copa America with Colombia, the goalkeeper returned to the Arsenal bench as Cech had taken over the number 1 spot. The player was fielded in the first two matches of the group stage of the UEFA Champions league which Arsenal lost. He performed very badly especially in the second match at Olympiakos, gifting the Greek side a goal. There has been no way back for him since then.

The keeper produced an impressive 8 clean sheets in 18 premier league appearances last season as Arsenal had an impressive second half to the season and would have hoped to become the substantive first choice the next season after initially playing second fiddle to Wojciech Szczesny when he first arrived from French Ligue 1 club Nice, in a deal thought to be worth around £4.5 million pounds in the summer of 2014.

It remains to be seen if Arsene Wenger really wants to let the player go as that would mean Cech is the senior goalkeeper available with Szczesny away on loan at Roma. Any injury or suspension to Cech will mean Arsenal have to field youngster, Matt Macey in goal.
