Arsene Wenger only signed Ospina last July and the Colombian has successfully supplanted Wojciech Szczesny as the first-choice keeper at the Emirates Stadium but it appears his association with the North London club will prove a fleeting one.

Ospina impressed at the 2014 World Cup finals and earned a move to Arsenal, making 23 appearances in all competitions after Szczesny was dropped by Wenger following a particularly disastrous display against Southampton on New Year’s Day.

Wenger will look to complete the capture of Chelsea’s Petr Cech in the coming weeks according to the Independent and in doing so will certainly have greatly improved something of a problem area in his Arsenal squad.

Cech had to warm the bench at Chelsea last season, with Jose Mourinho electing to usher in Thibaut Courtois after his three season loan spell at Atletico Madrid, and the Czech Republic international is edging towards a move from west to north London.

Having served Chelsea so well for over a decade, it will clearly be a wrench for Cech to leave Stamford Bridge, but the experienced keeper is apparently keen to remain in London, and as such a move to Arsenal may well suit all parties.
