Manchester United have been offered former Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina, according to reports in Italy.
United could soon be in the market for a back-up goalkeeper, with Dean Henderson keen to leave Old Trafford in January after struggling for game time this season.
Ralf Rangnick has already rejected a transfer request from Henderson but the England international remains determined to leave the club in search of regular first-team football.
Ospina’s agent has spotted a potential opportunity for his player and has offered him to United, according to Italian website Area Napoli.
The 33-year-old is out of contract in the summer and talks over an extension have reportedly broken down with Napoli.
Ospina has been with the the Italian side since 2018 after initially joining on loan from Arsenal, before making the move permanent the following year.
He has gone on to make 90 appearances for the club, keeping 36 clean sheets.
The Colombia international has also been offered to Real Madrid and Lazio, according to the report, as well as Brazilian club Flamengo and Saudi Arabia’s Al-Nassr.
A move to United would be an unexpected return to the Premier League for Ospina, who spent four seasons with Arsenal between 2014 and 2018.
He initially joined the Gunners on a four-year deal from Nice but would fail to secure the number one shirt at the Emirates, with the likes of Wojciech Szczesny and Petr Cech preferred in goal.
United interim manager Rangnick insists he’s happy with his current options this season.
When asked about Henderson’s desire to leave, Rangnick told talkSPORT: “A couple of weeks ago he asked me but I told him I’d rather have him stay until the end of the season.
“We are very happy with our goalkeepers but if it’s up to me I wouldn’t want him to leave.”
