LONDON, July 10- Goalkeeper David Ospina insists he is happy at Arsenal but describes Everton as a ‘very competitive team’ amidst rumours of a possible transfer.

The arrival of Petr Cech at the Emirates Stadium has cast doubt on the future of both Ospina and Wojciech Szczesny, with the Czech international widely expected to go straight into the starting XI.

This has prompted rumours the Colombian could seek a move away from North London after just one season at the club.

While flattered by the Toffees’ reported interest, Ospina remains completely focused on Arsenal, telling Sky Sports: “Everton? They are a very competitive team, that showed important things last season, with a good coach, and that plays good football. They are a team to take into account and a big possibility.

“There are some (other) possibilities, but my mind is on Arsenal. I want to continue there. I am very happy in London and so are my family, so therefore I hope at least to respect the contract, which is for another four years.

“Now an excellent keeper has arrived who I admire. During my holidays I’m analysing a lot of things and then I’ll have a conversation with the manager.

“For me, it will be an honour to play alongside a keeper with that experience. A goalkeeper keeps learning every day.”
