Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger started Ospina in goal in Tuesday's Champions League loss to Olympiakos.

The Colombian scored an own goal in the 3-2 defeat, and the Greek side was able to take the lead three separate times in the match. Consecutive losses in the group stage now leave Arsenal in danger of not advancing to the knock-out rounds.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger may choose Ospina to start in the Champions League against Olympiacos, reports the Daily Mail.

The manager said that he needs to give Ospina playing time, and that decisions of who to play would be taken game by game. Ospina started the last Champions League match for the Gunners as they lost to Dinamo Zagreb.

Ospina returned to training Arsenal on Tuesday, manager Arsene Wenger said.

Despite his solid play last season after taking over for Wojciech Szczesny, Ospina is headed for a backup role this year after the Gunners bought Petr Cech from Chelsea. Given the lack of playing time, Ospina could be on the move this summer, though a landing spot in the Premier League appears to be a long shot.

Ospina has garnered interest from Fenerbahce ahead of a potential summer transfer, the Daily Mail reports.

Ospina only arrived at Arsenal last summer, but could already make his exit given the Gunners' reported interest in signing Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech. Should Cech complete a move to Arsenal, he would certainly assume their starting position, leaving Ospina and Wojciech Szczesny to compete for backup duty. Although Szczesny was frozen out for the second half of last season, his homegrown status and long-term potential is thought to be more enticing than the solid yet unspectacular Ospina. As a result, Ospina could move elsewhere this summer, having enjoyed a commendable five-month stint as Arsenal's first-choice goalkeeper.

Ospina was credited with four saves during Arsenal's 4-1 defeat of Aston Villa to finish the season Sunday.

Ospina's four saves offered a decent boost for fantasy owners, but Sunday's performance left questions over the Colombian's long-term utility. The goal he conceded came after Ospina misjudged a corner kick and later on, he nearly batted a ball into his own net. While Ospina's eight clean sheets since taking over Arsenal's goalkeeping position in January made him a good fantasy value during the second half of this season, it remains to be seen whether he'll retain the Gunners' starting spot next season.

Ospina made two saves in Arsenal's scoreless draw with Chelsea on Sunday.

Playing without Diego Costa (hamstring) and Loic Remy (calf), which Didier Drogba (ankle) began the match on the bench, Chelsea was clearly playing for a scoreless draw and got just that. The good news for Ospina's fantasy owners is that he got a clean sheet too, though it kept him from any kind of win bonus. Up next is another solid clean-sheet opportunity when Arsenal travel to KC Stadium to take on Hull City.

Ospina was beaten by a 76th-minute penalty by Jordan Henderson but didn't allow any other goals during Arsenal's 4-1 win over Liverpool on Saturday.

Ospina, who made only one save, was solid throughout the match and continues his stronghold on the starting job at the Emirates. Up next is a road match against Burnley next Saturday.

Ospina did not make a save en route to a clean sheet victory over Monaco on Wednesday.

Monaco were more than happy to sit back after building a lead in the first leg and rarely ventured forward to threaten the Arsenal goal. Ospina and Arsenal next play this weekend against Newcastle in the Premier League.
