Unai Emery and Villarreal want to sign former Arsenal keeper, David Ospina, this summer when the Colombian’s contract with Napoli expires.

The thought of David Ospina might give some Arsenal fans nightmares, but that hasn’t stopped a host of clubs expressing an interest in the 33-year-old this summer.

After Real Madrid were said to be keen just a week ago, now, it is the turn of Villarreal, who seem a much more realistic future home for Ospina.

That’s according to Marca, who claim that, despite meetings between Napoli’s hierarchy and Ospina’s agent, they have not been able to find any sort of agreement and the keeper looks set to leave for free when his contract expires at the end of June.

Free is a price that appeals to Villarreal.

Villarreal’s own reserve keeper Sergio Asenjo, described by Marca as a ‘veteran’ despite being a year younger than Ospina, will leave the club when his contract expires this summer and the Spaniards are looking for a replacement.

Emery is also said to want ‘more competition’ for their main keeper, Geronimo Rulli.
