    ARSENAL keeper David Ospina is expected to seal a permanent move to Napoli – despite falling short on playing enough to trigger an automatic transfer this summer.

    Ospina spent last season on loan with the Serie A side after it became clear his chances to play for the Gunners were slim.

    As part of the initial agreement a clause was inserted which meant Napoli would automatically have to make the move permanent if the Colombian stopper made 24 appearances.

    Ospina, 30, actually appeared 24 times – meaning the Italian side were not obliged to stump up the £3.1million fee agreed with Arsenal at the start of the campaign.

    That fuelled speculation boss Carlo Ancelotti did not want to sign Ospina full-time.

    But it appears that is not the case and reports in Italy suggest Ancelotti does want to strike a deal with the Gunners for the goalkeeper.

    Ospina is thought to be keen to remain in Naples, where he believes he has better chances to play regular first team football.

    ARSENAL fans! You wanted a defender and now you could be getting one.

    The Gunners have cast their eye over Saint-Etienne's 18-year-old centre-back William Saliba and believe he is good enough to replace Laurent Koscielny who wants out.

    Despite being wanted by a host of Europe's elite, Arsenal hope £25m will be enough to sway the French youngster to move to the Emirates Stadium.

    WHEN it comes to his motors, Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang doesn't do things in halves.

    The Premier League Golden Boot winner has always had a penchant for supercars, and was renowned for his love of Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Porsches and Range Rovers at Borussia Dortmund.

    But since signing for the Gunners in January 2018, the Gabon sharpshooter has added a rare Ferrari LaFerrari to his car collection, worth £2m.

    Stylish Aubameyang also makes sure his cars look the business, getting them wrapped by North London-based celebrity car customiser, Yianni Charalambous.

    This all means that the 29-year-old striker's garage is now filled with rides worth as much as £3m.

    FENERBAHCE have ruled out signing Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil in the summer as the Gunners look to offload the German World Cup winner.

    The North London club are reportedly desperate to sell the 30-year-old, though they are struggling to drum up interest due to the player's mammoth £350,000-a-week wages.

    It has been claimed that Arsenal will even pay a portion of his wages at his next club should they manage to get rid of him.

    But one club he will not be moving to is Turkish side Fenerbahce, after chief Damien Comolli poured cold water on the potential deal.

    Speaking to AsistAnaliz, he said: “The question of Mesut is beyond imagination. I can't waste my time on this.”
