Carlo Ancelotti confirmed “David Ospina will remain at Napoli next season” and they’ll take up the €4m option from Arsenal.
There has been a great deal of speculation lately about the goalkeeper’s future, including suggestions the club wants to avoid giving him too many games, as that would mean the option to buy becomes mandatory.
“Ospina was meant to play on Thursday in the Europa League, but wasn’t feeling up to it, so I switched things around and used him tonight instead,” said Ancelotti in his Press conference after a 0-0 draw with Torino.
“Ospina will remain at Napoli next season, regardless of how many games he plays.”
Napoli invested heavily in the far younger Alex Meret and Ospina was brought in only after the Italian fractured his arm in pre-season training.
