In this circumstances of the club, David Ospina broke out of the silence and told that he might not be a part of the squad anymore for Arsenal in the next season. Petr Cech is undoubtedly the first choice Goalkeeper for the Gunners for last few seasons. Ospina had joined Arsenal in 2014-15 season from the Ligue 1 side Nice.
