DONE DEAL! Arsenal Confirm Third Summer Signing

By on July 27, 2014

It’s official. Arsenal have confirmed the signing of David Ospina from Nice on a long-term contract.

The transfer has been in the pipeline for a couple of weeks now and Arsene Wenger even confirmed himself on Thursday that the 25-year-old was heading for the Emirates this summer.

With Nice also confirming last night that it was a ‘done deal’, Arsenal have now announced the signing on Arsenal.com, with the goalkeeper joining the club on a long-term contract.

Arsene said:

“David Ospina is an excellent goalkeeper, with good experience and a proven record of performing with Nice and Colombia. He will add strength to our squad and we are very pleased that he will be joining us.”

The fee isn’t revealed but it’s understood to be in the region of around £3m, which is an excellent deal for someone of his quality and potential.

We’ve picked up a bargain as Ospina was in the final year of his contract and Nice were forced to cash-in now rather than lose him for nothing next summer.

Ospina will now link-up with the squad next week and make his debut against Benfica at the Emirates Cup on Saturday.

It’s another superb signing by the club. Chambers should be next in the door then we’ll hopefully bring in a defensive midfielder….exciting times.
