Arsenal keeper Ospina opens Boca Juniors door amid Napoli concern

Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina has concerns over his future at Napoli.

Napoli brought Ospina in on loan with option to buy - and that would be mandatory if a certain number of games are played.

“My current situation is that I am on loan for this season and there's a clause based on the number of games, so if I play regularly, it'll become an automatic purchase," Ospina told Radio Blu.

“When the situation doesn't depend on me, all I can do is wait for the decisions to be made by Napoli. The club had just spent a lot of money on (Alex) Meret, a young goalkeeper with a great future ahead of him, so I knew that when he came back from injury, this might happen.

“He's a great 'keeper, a lovely guy and he'll make a real name for himself in future."

Ospina has been linked with a return to South America for Boca Juniors.

“I want to continue playing in Europe, although a return to South American football is always a possibility. I am open for a move closer to home."
