With the money that has been poured into Paris Saint German and AS Monaco, French top flight Ligue 1 is re-emerging as one of the most respected and interesting on the continent.

Nice’s Colombian international goalkeeper David Ospina will be hoping that he can secure a big move away with some impressive performances at the World Cup. Premier League giants Arsenal have already been linked with a move for Ospina as Arsene Wenger looks to replace Lukasz Fabianski with another player capable of offering a challenge to first choice Wojciech Szczesny. Nice have had a disappointing season in Ligue 1, only narrowly avoiding relegation to the French second flight, something that may have been a reality had it not been for the impressive performances of Ospina between the sticks.
