Gunners close to agreeing deal for Colombian shot stopper.
Arsenal are said to be closing in on a £3million deal to sign Colombian World Cup goalkeeper David Ospina, according to the Metro.
The Gunners have been heavily linked with a move for the Colombian international in recent weeks thanks to his heroics in goal for the South American side as manager Arsene Wenger looks to bring in a player capable of challenging Wojciech Szczesny for the number one jersey.
And now respected Argentina news outlet Varsky Sports says the 25-year-old is close to sealing a switch to the Emirates Stadium.
Ospina apparently rejected the chance to sign a new contract with French side Nice before the tournament started, and the club have since told him that he is free to leave during the transfer window.
The 25-year-old has just one year left to run on his current deal in France and is available for just £3million.
Ospina joined Nice in 2008 from Colombian outfit Atletico Nacional and went on to make 177 appearances for the club, but failed to collect any silverware.
He collected the first of his 44 international caps back in 2007 and is now the country’s first choice custodian for international tournaments.
