Italian Serie A giants Napoli are reportedly trying to lower the asking price of Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina in their quest to sign him this month.
Colombian international shot stopper David Ospina is currently on a season-long loan from Arsenal at Italian side Napoli and has impressed a great deal in the colors of the club.
Napoli officials had initially agreed on a €3.5m fee to make his move permanent but they are trying to beat down the Gunners asking price according to the report from Italian media outlet II Mattino via Football London.
David Ospina has churned out series of impressive performances for Napoli this season after seizing his chance following the injury to Alex Meret.
The former Nice goalkeeper joined Napoli on loan last summer in the wake of the arrival of Bernd Leno from German Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen in a deal worth around £22m.
The arrival of German international Leno pushed David Ospina further down the pecking order in the goalkeeping department at Arsenal.
He became the third choice goalkeeper behind Petr Cech and Bernd Leno thus leading to his loan exit from the club.
David Ospina has less than 18 months left on his Arsenal deal at the moment and he could leave the club permanently for Napoli in the summer.
