Napoli have reportedly reached an agreement with Arsenal over the loan signing of David Ospina this summer.
The Colombian has fallen further down the pecking order following the signing of Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen and he was one of the star players that Unai Emery has placed on the market as he looks to trim his squad.
Ospina joined the Gunners in 2014 after a fine display at the World Cup in Brazil, but four years on, he has still not been able to displace Petr Cech as the club’s first choice goalkeeper.
Arsene Wenger usually used him as a backup to the former Chelsea goalie and played him in the Champions League and cup competitions. However, Bernd Leno would now have that privilege.
He would join the Italians on an initial loan deal and they have the option of turning it into a permanent move if they see enough of him to make his stay permanent.
He is expected to have his medical on Thursday ahead of the move. He would be linking up with former Chelsea boss, Carlo Ancelotti who replaced Maurizio Sarri as Napoli’s boss this summer.
