Arsenal have somehow managed to convince Napoli to pay up to €4.8m for David Ospina despite the Italians wanting to drive his price down as much as possible.

Over the weekend it was reported that Arsenal and Napoli finally found agreement for the transfer of David Ospina with the Italians paying the amount stipulated in his loan agreement.

Over recent weeks the David Ospina-to-Napoli saga had become farcical.

They benched him after 24 games so that they wouldn’t be obligated to buy him if he played 25, despite saying all season they wanted to do just that.

Then they tried to drive his price down. Now they are just paying a little more than has been reported all summer so far.
