According to the Mirror, Arsenal and Colombian goalkeeper David Ospina is ready to force a move to the Turkish League and join the recently crowned League champions Besiktas.
The former keeper who was signed from Nice after an impressive FIFA World Cup with the Colombian national team in 2014, appears to be tired of playing second fiddle to Czech Republic’s captain Petr Cech who is Arsene Wenger’s first choice goalkeeper. TransferMarketWeb reports that the goalkeeper might have his desired move approved as the two clubs have agreed a deal of £3.5 million for the transfer.
What this implies is that if Arsenal sells the Colombian, the club would have to sign another goalkeeper to compete with Cech as third choice goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny seems to be nearing a move to AS Roma either for another loan spell or a permanent deal after spending last season on loan at the Italian club.
Ospina is said to be engineering a move as he feels that at 27 he is nearing his peak and hence should be able to see game time and this is not far from the feeling of Szczesny who is 26 already and recently told Italian newspaper Il Messaggero , “I want to stay at Roma. It’s not all up to me, obviously. I want it to happen, and I
know Roma and Arsenal are talking about it, so we’ll see what happens”
