Ospina will sign a long-term contract with Arsenal, the club's official web site reports.

Ospina moves over from Ligue 1 side Nice, while also following up an excellent run at the World Cup with Colombia. He will be given a chance to start for the Gunners, although Wojciech Szczesny is certainly the frontrunner to keep the job.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ospina is nearing completion on a £3 million transfer from Ligue 1 side Nice to Arsenal FC, Sky Sports reports.

Ospina's current contract is set to expire at the end of the upcoming season, so Nice is keen to cash in on the Colombian shot-stopper this summer, as he's previously indicated he wouldn't renew his stay at the French club. At 25 years old, Ospina is coming off an impressive showing at the World Cup and would immediately provide competition to incumbent Wojciech Szczesny for Arsenal's first-choice goalkeeping position. In 29 games for Nice last season, Ospina tallied 101 saves and 13 clean sheets.

Ospina made two saves during Colombia's 3-0 win over Greece in their opening match of the World Cup.

Ospina wasn't tested much throughout the match, although he'll likely have a busier time trying to keep Ivory Coast and Japan out of the net.

Ospina recorded seven saves in Nice's 1-0 win over Marseille on Friday.

Ospina has been immense this season, as he's now registered 72 saves and 11 clean sheets in 21 games. That kind of production has made Ospina Ligue 1's best goalkeeper to this point in the season.

Ospina allowed three goals, but also made seven saves during Nice's loss to Montpellier over the weekend.

Ospina was quite busy Saturday, when even a plethora of saves couldn't prevent his opponent from scoring on three occasions. Nonetheless, Ospina has posted a clean sheet in eight of 16 league outings and his average of over three stops per game is also commendable.
