Everton interested in Arsenal man, deal could depend on future of beleaguered boss


As frustrations fire at Arsenal, some of the supporters drowning their sorrows in the Transfer Tavern this evening have begun tearing apart the club’s squad and debating who should be shifted on this summer.

No surprise then, that few tears have been shed following reports in the Daily Mirror that backup ‘keeper David Ospina is a target for Everton.

The Colombian has taken a backseat since the arrival of Petr Cech this summer and has proved to be somewhat inconsistent when called upon as a Number 1.

Clearly a good ‘keeper on his day, there are doubts about whether he has the consistency required at a club as big as the Gunners.

Toffees stalwart Tim Howard is due to leave Goodison Park and return to the MLS, opening up a space between the stick on Merseyside.

Turkish side Besiktas have also been credited with an interest in the former Nice stopper, though a switch to Everton could depend on the future of under fire boss Roberto Martinez.

Is Ospina a decent backup? Or indicative of the deadwood Arsenal so desperately need rid of?
