Serie A giants Napoli have reportedly moved closer to finalise the transfer of Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina on the permanent basis.

The North London club allowed Colombian keeper to make the loan move to Naples last summer, and he has gone on to make 18 appearances for the Italian giants since then.

The return of Alex Meret has put Ospina’s place in the team under threat, however, according to Calciomercato, that both player and the club are keen on to continue the partnership and make his move to Stadio Sao Paolo permanent.

The report adds that the Gunners and the Neapel have been in a deal in the recent days, and a transfer fee that is believed to be around €4m (£3.48m) has been agreed.

Napoli head-coach Carlo Ancelotti has allegedly assured  Colombia international goalkeeper David Ospina that he stay a significant part of his plans for the next season.

Meanwhile, Arsenal and current Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund could go head to head over a potential deal to sign Genk key man Leandro Trossard.

According to an exclusive report from Football London, the Gunners have been connected with a move for the attacker, while the German giants have also recently entered the race for his signature.

After showing an initial interest in landing Trossard towards the end of the previous year, the Gunners have reportedly set their sights on a summer swoop.

The 23-year-old star plays his football in the top tier of Belgian football and has been in stunning form for Genk this campaign. From 18 Pro League matches, the star has found the back of the net on 10 occasions.
