Arsenal to deploy scouts to assess World Cup Group C star

Wenger has money to spend

Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are starting to wonder why they sold Lukasz Fabianski as Arsenal seem to have nobody lined up to replace him in the squad.

But according to the Daily Mirror, Arsenal will send scouts to Brazil to watch David Ospina in goal for Colombia’s World Cup group games.

The Gunners have been casting their eyes over the Nice keeper for a few weeks now and will decide whether to make a bid if he performs on the big stage.

The Gunners had been quoted £3.5 million for the 25-year-old’s services and it’s a risky game to play as an impressive performance could see his stock rise dramatically.

But Wenger is intent on finding the perfect competition for first choice goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny after he lost reserve keeper Fabianski to fellow Premier League outfit Swansea City.

Ospina has earned more than 40 caps for Colombia and has enjoyed the best record in the South American qualifiers.

Arsenal fans. How important is it that you get a goalkeeper with enough experience to give Szczesny a run for his money? Let us know your thoughts below.
