29 Y/O Arsenal Keeper On South American Giants’ Radar: Should The Gunners Let Him Leave?

Boca Juniors are hoping to secure the signature of Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina this summer. According to recent reports, the Gunners shot-stopper has attracted the attention of the Argentine giants ahead of a potential move in the summer. The Colombian goalie has disclosed his desire to make a move back to South America with his future in North London uncertain.

The 29-year-old has been subject to limited first-team opportunities at the Emirates Stadium this season. However, he was a regular feature in Arsenal’s UEFA Europa League semi-final run but played just five matches in the English top-flight with Petr Cech preferred ahead of him. Some sources are now claiming that Boca Juniors have identified Ospina as an ideal candidate to take up the goal-keeping duties at the La Bombonera, especially after the dip in form of their number one goalie Agustin Rossi.

With Arsene Wenger leaving the North London side after 22 years at the club, the future of both Cech and Ospina have been thrown in doubt. In a recent interview, Ospina was quoted to have said, “There has always been talk about me joining Boca Juniors.

“People have spoken about this possibility ever since the time I was still in Colombia.

“I am enjoying life at Arsenal for the time being.

“But Boca are one of the biggest clubs, not only in South America but in the world.

“And you always keep the door open to the possibility of joining a club like that.”

The Gunners have finished their campaign with a total tally of 63 points after playing 38 games in the league. They have had an underwhelming season under Arsene Wenger which has seen the Frenchman exit the North London team after 22 glorious years at the club. They are now preparing for a period of transition following Wenger’s exit and will now look to go into the summer transfer period looking to make some clever additions to their team.

Retaining some of their top stars could go a long way in helping them challenge for major trophies next term but the sporadic players such as Ospina should be sold so that they can bring in some new recruits who can improve their league performance in the next campaign.

At 29, the Colombian still has a few years left in him to play at a high level which Boca Juniors could look to utilise in the coming years. It remains to be seen what lies ahead in the future of Ospina and whether he ends up making a move out of North London this summer.
