David Ospina joins Napoli from Arsenal on permanent transfer following loan spell
Last Updated: 05/07/19 7:12am
Goalkeeper David Ospina has left Arsenal to join Napoli on a permanent basis after a one-year loan stint at the Serie A side.
The 30-year-old Colombian international departs Arsenal five years after joining from Nice for a fee of £3.6m (€4m).
He enjoyed a successful year on loan to Napoli last season after falling down the pecking order at the London club following the arrival of Bernd Leno and Petr Cech, who has now retired.
Ospina won two FA Cups during his time at the Emirates, starting in the finals against Aston Villa in 2015 and Chelsea in 2017 respectively.
With 98 international appearances, he remains the most capped goalkeeper in Colombia's history.
"We would like to thank David for his contribution to the club and everyone at Arsenal wishes him the best for his future," said Arsenal in a statement.
