#1 Goalkeeper: David Ospina
Arsene Wenger was always keen on signing a goalkeeper who could give Wojciech Szczesny a run for his money. He has hit the bull’s eye with David Ospina’s signing. The Colombian joins the North London club from French Ligue 1 outfit Nice for a fee of just €3.5 million.
Ospina is an excellent organizer of the defence. He conceded just 2 goals from corners, the second least in Ligue 1. His positioning makes his saves look easy. He is just 25 years old, a relatively young age for a goalkeeper. Ospina failed to collect only one of his attempted claims in the Ligue 1 and ended up with claim success rate of 98%.
If things go according to plan, Ospina might just become Arsenal’s main goalkeeper. Beware Szczesny. Beware!
