Arsenal have confirmed the signing of goalkeeper David Ospina from Nice on a long-term contract for an undisclosed fee.
The 25-year-old starred at the World Cup with Colombia, helping his country to the quarter-finals in Brazil where they lost out to the hosts.
He made 189 Ligue 1 appearances during a six-year spell with Nice, where he was sent off on four occasions.
Ospina was a 17-year-old when he made his professional debut for Atletico Nacional in Colombia and he has won 44 caps for his country.
Arsenal are believed to have just over £3million for his services and boss Arsene Wenger said: “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.”
