Arsenal star David Ospina has been spotted in Naples ahead of his impending loan move to Serie A side Napoli (via Sport Witness).
With four first-team goalkeepers still at the club, it now looks likely that Arsenal are going to lose at least one in the coming weeks with David Ospina the likeliest candidate.
The transfer window may be shut for the top sides in England but clubs on continental Europe are still free to buy and loan players from Premier League clubs.
For weeks, David Ospina has attracted interest from across Europe with sides in Turkey closest to his signature.
However, that has changed in the last 24 hours after Napoli apparently agreed upon a deal to sign the player on loan.

The initial season-long loan does reportedly have an additional clause to buy the player outright should they wish.
Ospina joined Arsenal four years ago but has been spotted in Naples ahead of his medical with the Serie A side.
It’s good that this move is nearing completion. With Bernd Leno and Petr Cech at the club, there isn’t much room for David Ospina. He’s been a good servant for Arsenal but it’s time for everyone to move on.
