London: English Premier League side Arsenal said on Sunday they have signed Colombia's World Cup goalkeeper David Ospina from French club Nice.
Ospina, 25, was one of the stars of the World Cup with spectacular performances as his country reached the quarter-finals for the first time. He will compete for an Arsenal starting place with Polish international Wojciech Szczesny.
Arsenal said he would sign a "long-term contract", but did not give the fee. French reports this week said Arsenal would pay about four million euros ($5.4 million). Ospina has been at Nice for six seasons.
