Goalkeeper David Ospina is signing with Arsenal after helping Colombia reach the World Cup quarterfinals.

The 25-year-old Ospina is moving to the Premier League club after making 189 Ligue-1 appearances during six years at French side Nice.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says Ospina has “good experience and a proven record of performing with Nice and Colombia. He will add strength to our squad and we are very pleased that he will be joining us.”

Ospina will be competing for a place with Wojciech Szczesny after Lukasz Fabianski left Arsenal for Swansea earlier in the summer transfer window.

Financial details of Ospina’s move were not disclosed.
