David Ospina on the verge of Arsenal exit

David Ospina

Arsenal have gone about their transfer business in a very quick and efficient manner. They have added two defenders and a goalkeeper and further signings are expected to arrive as well.

As a result of the Gunners signing Bernd Leno to take over from Petr Cech, this has seen David Ospina looking for a move elsewhere and that interest is coming from Turkey, according to reports in A Spor.

The Colombian played for his country at the World Cup where he was unable to keep England from winning their first-ever penalty shootout.

The Turkish club Fenerbahce are keen on bringing the keeper to their club and they believe that they will be able to convince the player. The report states that keeper is close to a three-year deal with the Yellow Canaries and the transfer is expected to be finalised next week.

They have been after Ospina for a couple of years now and they are confident that they can finally land their man. The Colombian was never the first choice for Arsenal in the League but he has featured more prominently in European competitions for the Gunners.

It is difficult to see him get playing time, especially after Leno has been brought in so it makes sense that he wants to move. There has been some interest from Boca Juniors but the keeper prefers to move to the Turkish side. And also, it seems that Arsenal are keen on moving the player as well. This will help free up the wages and also add to the transfer budget.

The Gunners are almost done with their activity in the transfer market but an outgoing such as this can lead to changes in their plans. Fenerbahce have also been keen on other Arsenal players such as Jack Wilshere and Danny Welbeck.

Arsenal will not be missing a lot if Ospina was to leave the club as he has only impressed here and there. He has not been consistent enough to command a regular place in the first team. This has led to him being used as more of a backup during his time at the club. If a transfer is to happen, it is expected to be wrapped up by the end of next week.
