Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger will have to wait until after the current Premier League season draws to a close, for better or worse, before we have a clearer picture of which players may be still in the Arsenal squad for next season, and the next couple of months and the eight Premier League games left for us to play could have a big say on this.
That is definitely the case with our Colombian international keeper David Ospina, as a report in the Daily Star explains that the current first choice between the sticks is leaving a decision on his future until the summer.
You would definitely say that the last few weeks have increased the chances of him staying at Arsenal, because the injury to Petr Cech has given him a chance he was not likely to get before and he has used that chance to remind us all just what a class act he is.
Ospina said, “Since Petr joined we have built a good friendship.
“However, we are still competing for the spot.
“I don’t want to think about the summer. I’m focused on the present and my present is Arsenal.
“We will see how this season ends, then we will see what happens with my future.”
I wonder if Ospina is thinking about what he can learn from the Arsenal number one if he stays and balancing that against the likely chances of him actually playing. Could it be as simple as whether the Gunners are in the Champions League or not? Or is it a simple choice for the club between him and Wojciech Szczesny?
