Arsene Wenger has a decision to make when it comes to which goalkeeper he will use to back up Petr Cech, as it is obvious that the Gunners do not need four goalkeepers at the club.
For us here at Soccer Transfers either Wojciech Szczesny or David Ospina has to go, while 22-year-old Argentinian goalkeeper Damián Martínez can be groomed to take over from Cech once his contract expires in four-years’ time.
Ospina played well for Arsenal last season, and also for Colombia in this summer’s Copa America, and given the fact he earns considerably less than Szczesny we think he is the one we would keep.
He is even happy at the club telling the Colombian version of Spain’s AS that he loves it at Arsenal.
“I want to continue showing my level and everything that I can give the Arsenal,” he said. “I want to stay.”
He added: “Coming to Arsenal is a dream come true. It is such a great team. “
This then leaves the Polish international as the odd man out, and while the Gunners could quite easily let him go out on loan, it might in the long run be better for him to join a team where he is a starter each week rather than sit on the bench and watch Cech and Ospina week in week out.
So for us the decision to sell Szczesny is an easy one, which also gives Arsene Wenger money to go after that Marquee striker we all expecting to see arrive at the Emirates.
