Lazio and Atalanta Join Real Madrid in Ospina Transfer Race

Napoli shotstopper David Ospina is bound to leave the club come June. The former Arsenal keeper sees his three-year contract expire at the end of the month, and a host of top clubs are on his trail.

Luciano Spalletti wants Ospina to stay but the club management has failed to tie him down to an extension so far.

According to MARCA, Real Madrid No.2 Andriy Lunin could try his luck elsewhere as he is desperate for more playing time. Taking advantage of which, the Spanish champions, by virtue of Carlo Ancelotti’s preference, are interested in Ospina to play as Thibaut Courtois second-in-charge.

Moreover, reports from Corriere dello Sport (via TuttoNapoli) indicate that two Italian teams are also keeping close tabs on the Colombian international.

Lazio are Atalanta are the interested suitors for a free transfer, as both teams seek reinforcements between the posts.

After four years with the Partenopei, Ospina is finally set for new pastures. He has 103 appearances for the southern giants, before which he was at Arsenal for four seasons.
