Ospina joins Napoli on loan from Arsenal

David Ospina has joined Napoli on a season-long loan from Arsenal.

The Serie A club have the option of signing the Colombia international on a permanent deal. Ospina has slipped to third in the Arsenal pecking order, behind Bernd Leno, a €19.2million signing from Bayer Leverkusen, as well as established number one Petr Cech. Napoli, who lost Pepe Reina to AC Milan and saw new signing Alex Meret sustain a broken arm, had also been linked with a move for Liverpool’s Simon Mignolet. Ospina, 29, joined the Gunners from Nice in 2014 and has made 70 appearances for the club in all competitions.
