Arsenal are ready to sell David Ospina to Napoli despite the Colombian’s impressive loan spell with the Italian club.
Ospina, 30, does not figure in Unai Emery’s Emirates plans following the signing of £22.5million Bernd Leno this summer from Bayern Leverkusen.
Italian outlet Il Mattino (via TuttoMercatoWeb) have also reported that Napoli could activate their option-to-buy in the winter window.
Napoli have the option to sign the Colombian international on a permanent basis for a fee in the region of £3.5m in the summer.
But coach Carlo Ancelotti has been so impressed with Ospina’s efforts as stand-in for the injured Alex Meret that he is keen to complete the signing in January.
