Arsenal have reportedly rejected an offer from Serie A side Napoli for their want-away goalkeeper David Ospina.

The Colombian goaltender has been pushed down the pecking order due to the acquisition of Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen last month and he wants a move away from the Emirates Stadium so as to feature more prominently in the coming season.

Napoli are presently in search of new goalkeeper as  Alex Meret, whom they recently captured, is out of action due to a broken arm which he suffered in training ground.

David Ospina didn’t spend much time on the pitch last season under Arsene Wenger, who preferred Petr Cech in his starting lineup even when the Czech international was obviously out of form.

Though the Gunners are ready to partway with the 29-year-old goalie this summer, they have rejected a loan offer which they received from Napoli.

According to Sky Sports Italia, Unai Emery wants to sell the glovesman on a permanent deal, therefore, they ignore Napoli’s move is not an option until they offer a permanent deal contract.

The media outlets further claim that Napoli manager Carlo Ancelotti has ordered his employers to make another move for the experienced goalkeeper so as to capture him before the close of the transfer market later today.

In the same report, the Serie A runner-up are also looking at the possibility of luring Guillermo Ochoa to the Napolitano Stadium, should they fail to get Ospina – their prime target.

Bernd Leno

The 26-year-old spoke about his move to the Emirates Stadium in a chat with the club’s official website and that the two players convinced him to swap Bayer Leverkusen for Arsenal during the summer’s transfer window.

He further revealed that he has known Mustafi for over a decade having played together with him through the various German youth teams.

Bernd Leno signed a long-term contract at Arsenal this summer after the Gunners agreed to pay a reported fee of around €22m for his services.

Since moving to the Emirates Stadium, Leno has had to play second fiddle to the club’s vice-captain and first-choice goalkeeper Petr Cech especially in the Premier League.

He featured in the cup competitions (Carabao Cup and Europa League games) until Cech suffered a hamstring injury during the Gunners’ 2-0 victory over Everyone at the Emirates Stadium.

The injury has since ruled out the retired Czech Republic international goalkeeper for one month and Bernd Leno has been in the Arsenal goal since then.
