David Ospina will join Arsenal Football Club on a long-term contract for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old goalkeeper had an impressive World Cup with Colombia, helping his country to the quarter finals in Brazil with a series of fine displays.
He arrives at Emirates Stadium from French side Nice, where he made 189 Ligue 1 appearances during a six-year spell.

Ospina began his career with Atletico Nacional in Colombia’s Categoria Primera A league, aged just 17. An experienced international, he currently has 49 caps for his country.

Arsène Wenger said of the club’s new signing: “David Ospina is an excellent goalkeeper, with good experience and a proven record of performing with Nice and Colombia. He will add strength to our squad and we are very pleased that he will be joining us."

It is expected Ospina will make his first Arsenal appearance at the Emirates Cup, which takes place at Emirates Stadium on Saturday, August 2 and Sunday, August 3.

Ospina’s Arsenal squad number will be revealed soon through Arsenal’s official Instagram account.

Everyone at Arsenal would like to welcome David to the Club.

The transfer is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.

In four years, agent Ospina will help us secure the signing of his sister's husband, James Rodriguez.

Seems like a dream transfer window for Arsenal Fans. Some very impressive signings. Still a CB and DM remain priorities if we are to remain competitive till the end of the Season.

Ospina :bow: :bow:

When was the last time we had 2 excellent goalkeepers?

Ospina could bench Szczesny easily. One mistake and Szczesny is done so it's a win win for us.

Come on RG, that's a bit harsh on Fabianski.. He used to be Flappy, but he improved significantly the last two years - it's why Szcz improved as well..

I love Lukasz and will give him a big hug if I ever see him in real life.

but even after a magnificent FA Cup performance he nearly undid everything in the dying moments vs Hull Laughing

I remember that 12 minute sigh of relief afterwards, it was just Flappy sending himself off with a classic Flappy moment.

Fabianski drastically improved in his last 2 seasons and I really rate him highly, but when we signed him, he was very poor. Inconsistent and shaky.

Ospina as a signing is proven. That's what I meant.
