Wenger himself confirmed he would sign only “top players” in winter, and this has seen the club linked to an avalanche of star players in recent weeks.
Arsenal are fighting to hold on to Colombian international goal keeper David Ospina as he seeks a move away from the Emirates in the January transfer window.
The Gunners are battling to keep hold of their fringe players at the Emirates, first it was Mathieu Debuchy seeking a move away from the Emirates in search for more playing time with Ospina set to follow suit, while club captain Mikel Arteta is frustrated at being limited to a bit part role at the Emirates.
According to Daily mail via tribalfootball, Arsenal are determined to keep Ospina this month despite the goalkeeper’s growing frustration at being the No 2 role as he has drop down the pecking order since the arrival of Petr Cech from Premier League Champions Chelsea in the summer.
The Colombian would happily leave the Emirates Stadium this month, but the Gunners are hugely reluctant to sanction a move for the shot stopper before the summer as they look to keep their squad intact for the title race.
Ospina still has more battles to face if he fails to secure a move away from the Emirates in this January transfer window as Gunners on loan goalkeeper with Italian outfit AS Roma, Wojciech Szczesny will likely return to the Gunners while Petr Cech is not looking likely to relinquish his grasp on the first choice position.
