Italian Serie A giants Napoli have reportedly completed the signing of Colombian international goalkeeper David Ospina from Arsenal.

This is according to the publication from the stables of popular media portal Football London.

It was revealed that an official announcement won’t be made until after the ongoing COPA America tournament in Brazil.

David Ospina and Colombia made a flying start to their campaign with an impressive win over favourites Argentina.

The goalkeeper played the entire duration of the game and also kept a clean sheet for Colombia to win 2-0 in their Group B clash.

David Ospina has been at Arsenal since the summer of 2014 when he joined from French Ligue 1 club OGC Nice for around £3m.

The Gunners signed him shortly after his heroics for the Colombian national team at the 2014 FIFA World Cup tournament in Brazil.

Colombia reached the quarterfinals before they were eliminated by their hosts via a 2-1 win.

Ospina played second fiddle at Arsenal to recently retired goalkeeper Petr Cech for the majority of his Gunners’ career.

He joined Napoli on a season-long loan deal last summer with the Italians obligated to sign him permanently for £4m if he plays 25 games in all competitions.

The Arsenal shot stopper played 24 games in all competitions but Napoli still decided to sign him permanently.
