According to nicematin.com, a news organisation from Nice, Arsenal are set to sign the Nice goalkeeper David Ospina. Ospina, who played for Colombia in this year's World Cup, is 25 and has been at Nice since 2008. The cost will be something in the region of €4m, according to nicematin.com:

David Ospina ne sera plus un joueur de l'OGC Nice la saison prochaine.

Selon nos informations, le gardien colombien va s'engager dans les jours qui viennent pour Arsenal, avec lequel il est déjà tombé d'accord sur le plan contractuel.

Le club londonien et l'OGC Nice doivent juste régler les derniers détails du transfert d'Ospina, 25 ans, qui avoisinerait les quatre millions d'euros.

Translated (by yours truly, not Google translate), it reads "The Colombian goalkeeper will commit to Arsenal in the coming days, with whom he has already agreed a contract. The London club and OGC Nice just need to finalise the last details of the transfer of Ospina, 25, who would cost around four million euros.

Ospina would be expected to provide competition for Wojciech Szczesny, replacing Lukasz Fabianski who has, of course, left on a free transfer to Swansea City.
