Arsenal fans have taken issues with their club over a lot of things that go on at The Emirates. One of the main things that gets to the fans is when they sell players for reduced fees that they know their rivals would be able to squeeze a lot more out of, and that has struck again as it’s become apparent David Ospina will leave for £4 million this summer.
Ospina to Napoli this summer… https://t.co/RrwG2e9mRR

This has been confirmed by Football Italia as Carlo Ancelotti has made it clear that he wants to keep the player at the club past the summer following a successful start to life in Naples. The Colombian international shot-stopper struggled for game time at Arsenal as he had to compete with Petr Cech and Wojeich Szczesny in his Arsenal career before his summer loan to Italy.
The 30-year-old has been in top form this season, though, whilst he may not have played the number of games he would have liked, he has still featured more prominently than in his days as a Gunner. In total, the Colombian has featured 18 times under Ancelotti, shipping only 17 goals and keeping an impressive seven clean sheets, including one against Liverpool in the Champions League.

We sell full international players for 4-5 mln pounds, like we are in 2001. Joke.

We have to be the dumbest club when it comes to selling our players. No club undervalues players like Arsenal.Then we will then cry money problems

The Gunners hate the way their club is run and would love to see some changes that would see them bring in a bit more cash for their stars.
