Goalkeeper David Ospina has reportedly decided that he would like to join Napoli on a permanent deal.

Parent club Arsenal have let Ospina spend the campaign in Italy due to the arrival of Bernd Leno, and the Colombian ace has already gone on to make seven outings in all competitions.

Il Mattino is reporting that has resulted in the 30-year-old signalling Premier League side that he would like to complete a permanent move to the Serie A outfit.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side have the option to buy the South American keeper for a fee in the region of £4 million at the end of his temporary spell in this summer.

David Ospina still has two years left on his current contract at Emirates Stadium, but the Colombia international is unlikely to make another outing for the club with Petr Cech and Emiliano Martinez in competition with Bernd Leno, who used Czech keeper’s injury to occupy the place between the sticks.

It remains to see what decision Unai Emery will make when veteran goalkeeper is available as Petr Cech is desperate for playing time as summer arrival Bernd Leno.
