In a statement on the club website, Arsenal confirmed that they had signed the player on a six-year contract for an undisclosed fee.

Arsene Wenger told the official website: "David Ospina is an excellent goalkeeper, with good experience and a proven record of performing with Nice and Colombia."

He will add strength to our squad and we are very pleased that he will be joining us."

Ospina is the third World Cup star to arrive at Arsenal this summer, joining Chile’s Alexis Sanchez and France’s Mathieu Debuchy, who left Barcelona and Newcastle United respectively.

Wenger's side, who won the FA Cup and qualified for the Champions League last season, have also been linked with Southampton duo Morgan Schneiderlin and Calum Chambers, although a move for Real Madrid's Germany midfielder Sami Khedira appears to have stalled.
