"I rate him highly" - Arsene Wenger wants 28-year-old to play for Arsenal this season


Arsenal manage Arsene Wenger has rubbished rumours claiming that David Ospina will leave the club this summer.

The goalkeeper has been heavily linked with a move to Turkey.

But the Frenchman has confirmed that the Colombia international will play a part in Arsenal's campaign.

"It was not easy [to convince him to stay], because of course all these players want to play," Wenger told reporters.

"They are top-level players, they want to go to the World Cup but he will get a number of games here and he will fight with Petr Cech.

"The fight is quite open.

"At the moment I play Petr Cech but this battle is not won definitely by Petr Cech because I rate Ospina highly and, anyway, we play other competitions and he will play."
