Without a proper backup to Wojciech Szczesny between the sticks, Arsene Wenger is believed to be targeting Colombia number one David Ospina, Mirror reports.
The goalkeeper had a great World Cup, aiding his team’s effort in reaching the quarter finals of the tournament before eventually being knocked out by Brazil.
Wenger is also targeting Cardiff City’s David Marshall but his £10 million asking price doesn’t seem reasonable as he could turn to Ospina, who is only valued at £3million.
Alex McCarthy of Reading and Kiko Casilla of Espanyol are other potential candidates, but none of them can match the low asking price of the Colombia star.
With the Gunners spending big on attempting to lure Barcelona’s Alexis Sanchez for £30 million along with the recent agreement for Newcastle’s Mathieu Debuchy, it looks as as though they want to save all they can on brining in a backup keeper.
The club aren’t stopping there with potential deals to sign Lars Bender, Morgan Schneiderlin, and Loic Remy still being prepared as they look to challenge for the title next season.
