1. Arsenal willing to sell

Arsenal will be willing to offload their Colombian international keeper at a fair price once they sign Petr Cech. According to the Daily Mail Wojciech Szczesny will remain as Arsenal’s number two meaning Ospina could be sold especially if he wants regular first-team football which the Yellow Canaries would provide him. It is also worth noting that the Süper Lig has a history of South American keepers settling in quickly and becoming cult heroes. Claudio Taffarel and Faryd Mondragon are still fondly remembered today and current Galatasaray keeper Fernando Muslera has excelled since joining the club.
