Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina is closing in on a permanent move to Italian Serie A giants Napoli this summer.

According to the publication from Football London, David Ospina will join Napoli permanently in the coming days.

The Colombian international shot stopper spent the just concluded season on loan at Napoli having joined them at the start of the campaign.

Ospina signed for Napoli on a season-long loan deal last summer with the obligation of a permanent transfer for £4m if he plays 25 games for the Italians.

The 30-year-old goalkeeper didn’t play the stipulated 25 games thus giving Napoli the upper hand during negotiations for his transfer.

David Ospina played 24 games in all competitions for Napoli during the just concluded season and was given a personal leave towards the end of the campaign.

Napoli are in a strong position and they have agreed on £3m for the transfer of David Ospina instead of the £4m in his loan contract since he didn’t meet up with the 25 games required.

David Ospina signed for Arsenal in the summer of 2014 shortly after the FIFA World Cup tournament in Brazil.

The Colombian international goalkeeper joined the Gunners from French club OGC Nice and has spent the majority of his time at Arsenal as the second choice shot stopper behind Petr Cech.
