Last summer, Arsenal allowed David Ospina to join Napoli on a season long loan deal following the arrival of Bernd Leno at the Emirates.

Over the past couple of months, the common theme has been the Colombia international’s temporary move will be made permanent by the Serie A outfit.

In February, Carlo Ancelotti confirmed the Naples based club are planning to retain the goalkeeper beyond this campaign by paying a fee to the Gunners.

At the end of last month, the South American custodian’s father revealed his son’s desire is to leave the Premier League side and join the Italian club on a permanent deal.

Ancelotti started Ospina in Napoli’s 2-1 defeat to Atalanta on Monday and after the match, the 30-year-old spoke to media in the mixed zone regarding regular playing time and his future.

“Not always playing is a particular situation, one would always like to play. We are always ready, however, when the coach asks us to be. There are two other goalkeepers who can play,” Ospina was quoted as saying by Napoli Gol.

“My Future? My hope is to stay at Napoli. Then we will decide with the club at the end of the season,” he added.

Ospina has started in 15 league matches for Napoli this campaign.
