Former Arsenal goalkeeper, David Ospina, is seeking reassurances from Napoli as he eyes up a move back home to Atletico Nacional.

Arsenal finally sold Ospina permanently just last summer, picking up a fee of £3.15m for the Colombian international.

This season he has 14 appearances for the Naples side in Serie A and a total of just 15 overall.

“I have a contract with Napoli, there are situations that need to be clarified, but for now I am trying to just make the most of every opportunity,” Ospina told Blu Radio, via Football Italia.

“We’ll see what happens and at the end of the season we will make a decision.”

Ospina is under contract with the Partenopei until June 2022 but when he was asked if he would like to return to his first club, Atletico Nacional, the 32-year-old, replied, “This is an objective I would love to pursue and the moment will come when I return, but right now I have a contract with Napoli.”

Bricks for hands

Arsenal signed Ospina in 2014 from Nice for a fee of £3.6m. Although he hadn’t yet pulled on an Arsenal shirt, he was an Arsenal player at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil where he shone and we all got excited about what a great keeper we had landed.

Sadly, Ospina was never able to replicate his international form with the Gunners and conceded 76 goals in 70 games with just 27 cleansheets.

Of course, he wasn’t protected by the most watertight defence in front of him.

Still, we all know what we saw…
