Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina could be a target for Belgian side Club Brugge, who are looking to make the Colombian international first-choice between the sticks this season.
Club Brugge are said to be in the market for a new first-choice goalkeeper and have two targets on their shortlist. According to Proximus TV via Voetbal Belgie, David Ospina is one of their targets, along with KAS Eupen’s Hendrik von Crombrugge.
The report claims that Ospina is unhappy with his lack of playing time at Arsenal and wants more first team football ahead of the World Cup in the summer. The Gunners would reportedly be content to send him out on loan.
Ospina is the current number two at the London club, and has only played in the cup matches this season. He was linked with a move to the MLS in the summer but ended up staying.
As the only other senior keeper at the club, it’s unlikely that Arsenal would let him go in January.
Given that Ospina has 81 caps for Colombia and has been their first-choice keeper for a number of years, his World Cup place shouldn’t be under much threat.
However, a long-term solution for a player who quite clearly isn’t going to be first choice at Arsenal might not be too far away.
