Arsenal wait for update on Ospina after apparent concussion

Arsenal are waiting for an update from Napoli after goalkeeper David Ospina fainted during a Serie A game.

Ospina suffered a suspected concussion early on in the 4-2 victory over Udinese after colliding with Ignacio Pussetto.

The Colombian, who joined Napoli on loan last summer, received treatment on the pitch and carried on with his head bandaged.

But he fainted shortly before half-time and was replaced by Alex Meret.

Carlo Ancelotti confirmed after the game that the injury was “nothing serious” and that Ospina was “conscious”, but Arsenal are waiting for an official update.

He was kept in hospital overnight on Sunday and has undergone a CAT scan which revealed no lasting damage.

Seriously though, this needs sorting.

The Gunners are in line to make a surprise profit on the 30-year-old, who has one year left on his Emirates contract.
