Backup goalkeeper David Ospina is set to stay at the Emirates Stadium for another season after speculation about a move to Fenerbahce.

And Arsene Wenger has made a shock revelation that it wasn’t an easy deal to pull off as Ospina needed more convincing to stay as there is no Champions League role to offer him this season – but that the Colombia international could still edge out Petr Cech as his No. 1.

“It was not easy [to make him stay], because of course all these players want to play. They are top-level players, they want to go to the World Cup,” Wenger said.

“But he will get a number of games here and he will fight with Petr Cech. The fight is quite open. At the moment I play Petr Cech but this battle is not won definitely by Petr Cech because I rate Ospina highly and anyway, we play other competitions and he will play.”
