When Bernd Leno was bought by Unai Emery in the summer transfer window, questions arose about who out of Arsenal’s current crop of goalkeepers was going to leave.
Petr Cech started last weekend’s Premier League opening 2-0 defeat to Manchester City, which suggests that Leno is second in command.
David Ospina used to be second choice, but the new arrival pushed the Colombian further down the pecking order.
With the offer of first-team football seeming unlikely at the Emirates, the 29-year-old – valued at £4.5m by Transfermarkt – looked elsewhere.
The shot-stopper has agreed to join Serie A outfit Napoli on loan, with The Guardian reporting that there is an option to buy for the Italians.
In reaction to this news, some Arsenal fans are hopeful that Ospina will return once Cech eventually leaves the North London outfit.
Others, though, would prefer the Colombian to completely call time on his Arsenal career, which has spanned four years.
