DONE DEAL! Arsenal complete transfer of Colombia keeper Ospina

We all know that Arsene Wenger likes to keep the Arsenal transfer business firmly under wraps until the deal is done and ready to be announced. You can’t blame him because things can change at the last minute and you end up with egg on your face.

So to hear the Prof say on Saturday, in a report on Arsenal.com after the first pre-season game against Boreham Wood, that he would definitely be signing a new keeper this summer, says to me that he is close to sealing the deal for a stopper to replace Lukasz Fabianski. It might seem a bit thin, but Wenger refused to be drawn on which other positions would be strengthened.

And Sky Sports are reporting that Arsenal are just about ready to complete the transfer of the World Cup star David Ospina, the Colombia international number one who received great praise for his performances in Brazil.

In fact, the chairman of his French club Nice has confirmed that the transfer will go through today. With just one year left on his contract with Nice, the talented 35-year old is only going to cost around £3 million, which really is a great piece of business from Arsenal and Wenger. But will he challenge Wojciech Szczesny for top spot?

      You know of course we only have 1 recognized first team GK? Current 1st team squad consists of 26 players with 4 under 21. We can therefore sign max 3 21+ players without selling/loaning out. One is likely a GK, if we promote Martinez, that leaves only 1 more…

    So he has become 35 years old because he is joining Arsenal, alright? Arsenal haters will never retire even on Holy Sunday, damn it!
