North London club Arsenal has been approached by Turkish side Besiktas over out of favour Arsenal goal keeper David Ospina.
Besiktas have submitted a formal proposal to the Gunners about signing out of favour goal keeper David ospina on a permanent. It’s believed that no deal has been struck yet between both clubs, but there have been on-going discussions over the past month.
The Turkish Super lig club who won the Turkish league title last season, have been heavily linked with a move for David Ospina whom they failed to sign in Jamuary after a £2.7 million pounds bid was rejected.
The Arsenal goal keeper is currently on duty for his National team Colombia at the on-going Copa America. The safe hand admitted he is not too sure of his future.
Ospina overtook the starting glove from Wojciech Szczesny at Arsenal last year but then found himself dropped to the bench after Arsene Wenger brought in former Chelsea man Petr Cech in the summer.
Besiktas sporting director Gokhan Keskin confirmed that the Turkish giants would like to bring in Ospina during the transfer window.
Keskin told Turkish radio station Radyospor, “Nothing has been agreed on yet but we are targeting Ospina.”
Arsenal should try to Keep David Ospina at the club, now that Wojciech Szczesny is to be move on loan to Roma. A good goal keeper is needed to serve as back up to Petr Cech.
