Besiktas confirm interest in Ospina


Besiktas have confirmed they are interested in signing Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina.

The 27-year-old was a target for the Turkish c back in December only for Arsene Wenger to block the move.

According to Turkish Football, Besiktas’ sporting director, Gokhan Keskin, told local radio station Radyospor: “Nothing has been agreed on yet but we are targeting Ospina.”

Ospina, who is currently preparing for the Copa America in the US, spent the season as back-up to Petr Cech and is likely to command a transfer fee in the region of £3 million.

It’s likely that Wojciech Szczesny will be invited back into the fold at London Colney should the Colombian leave.

Given Besiktas’ reputation for happily linking themselves with every player going, we’re still getting the poo-o-meter out for the lads.
