Italian Serie A giants Napoli are determined to speed up the permanent transfer of Arsenal shot-stopper David Ospina.
Colombian international goalkeeper Ospina is on a season-long loan deal at Napoli from the Gunners.
He joined Napoli before the end of this summer’s transfer window shortly after he played his part in Colombia’s run to the first knockout stage at the World Cup tournament.
Popular Italian media outlet Gazzetta dello Sport claim that Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis wants to make his loan move permanent.
There’s a permanent transfer clause of €3.5m in the loan contract that took him from Arsenal to Napoli in the summer.
De Laurentiis is ready to reward Ospina with a permanent move following his impressive start to the season.
The former OGC Nice goal minder has been in fantastic form for Napoli since he replaced the injured Alex Meret.
Arsenal and manager Unai Emery won’t have much problems sanctioning the sale of David Ospina who was the Gunners’ third choice goalkeeper before he moved to Italy.
He was the second choice goalkeeper and the assigned shot stopper for the cup competitions before the arrival of German goalkeeper Bernd Leno from Bundesliga pushed him further down the pecking order.
