Casillas to Arsenal OFF but Ospina WILL challenge Szczesny says Wenger!

I don’t know what the hold-up has been, as the reports about David Ospina and his transfer to Arsenal from Nice have been around for a while. It may have been something to do with these Arsenal transfer rumours from Spain about the Real Madrid keeper Iker Casillas, but if there was ever any chance of Arsenal getting the 33-year old Spain international this summer, they seem to be over.

Because, as reported by the Daily Mail, Arsene Wenger has revealed the the Colombia number one Ospina will be playing for the Gunners in the season ahead. Even though the transfer is yet to be announced on the official Arsenal website, the Frenchman would not be talking about the 25-year old World Cup star unless the deal was sealed.

Almunia staying but what about Fabianski?

Wojciech Szczesny has established himself as the Number One keeper at Arsenal, but who is going to be the long-term second choice behind him.

His fellow countryman Lukasz Fabianski repeatedly said before Christmas that he wanted to move on this month if he wasn’t given more first team chances at Arsenal, especially as wants to challenge Szczesny for the Polish international place as well.

But there have been NO rumours about him moving on since and with just a few days of the transfer window left he looks unlikely to leave now.
