Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is pleased with the imminent deal for Nice goalkeeper David Ospina.
Wenger was asked about the Colombian after defeat to New York Red Bulls, and revealed he is looking forward to seeing the big man arrive.
As quoted on the Arsenal official website, he said: “I’ve known him for a long time because he played for Nice and he went there a few years ago and slowly became a very important player for them.
“Hugo Lloris played for Nice before he moved to Lyon and after he moved they played Ospina.
“He had a big impact straight away and Lloris was not an easy player to replace. I felt that he did very well at the World Cup.”
