Hernan Ospina, the father of Arsenal on loan keeper David Ospina, wants to see his son to make his move at Naples permanent in the near future.

Speaking to Radio Marte,  the Colombian goalkeeper’s father talked up a permanent move following a run in starting Xi.

“We hope he stays in Naples, because he is happy and has rediscovered space after the Arsenal benches, and I hope he can be the protagonist in blue because he is good in Naples.”

Ospina has only joined Napoli on loanin what was a surprise move, however, he since been a regular at Carlo Ancelotti’s side.

The Serie A giants were looking in the transfer market to replace Pepe Reina, who left for AC Milan and wanted an experienced shot-stopper to be in their goal.

The South American stopper had fallen even further down the pecking order at the North London club over the summer due to the arrival of Geran keeper Bernd Leno.

After joining from Bundesliga giants Bayer Leverkusen, Leno made Ospina third-choice at the Emirates and it has been the main reason why Colombian left the team.
