Getafe ‘close in’ on signing Arsenal misfit

OspinaArsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are surprised to see one of their recent purchases could be set for an early exit from the Emirates, with a Spanish side ready to swoop.

TuttoMercatoWeb state La Liga outfit Getafe are tracking Arsenal’s Colombian stopper David Ospina, who was widely criticised following a high-profile mistake in the Gunners’ Champions League defeat to Arsenal; which left them on the brink of an early European exit.

Independent add that Getafe are ‘closing in’ on the signing, mentioned in their article head-line, though fans were disappointed not to see any evidence to support that claim within the content of the piece.

One interesting factor they do add though is that Getafe face competition in the market; with Besiktas, Genoa and Palermo all tracking the World Cup stopper.

Our punters are unconvinced that Arsenal would let Ospina leave, as he is the only senior alternative to Petr Cech within the squad as Wojciech Szczesny is spending the season on-loan with Italian side Roma.

Arsenal fans, would letting Ospina leave be a wise move? Let us know in the comments below!
