Report: Fenerbahce target €7 million deal for Ospina

David Ospina PSG 2016

David Ospina is once again being linked with a move to Turkey with Fenerbahce reportedly set to agree a €7 million move for the Colombian keeper.

The 28-year-old was linked with the Istanbul side back in June 2015 while neighbours Besiktas also publicly courted the player last summer.

Ospina is under contract at the Emirates until 2019 so Arsenal are under no pressure to sell, however, having played second fiddle to Petr Cech over the last two seasons it’s understood that he’s angling for a move to pastures new.

The Gunners signed Dave from French side Nice after his exploits at the World Cup in 2014 and, the odd mistake aside, he’s been relatively solid back-up.

Turkish publication Fanatik claims that the player could be on the verge of a four-year deal with Fenerbahce as they look for a long-term replacement for veteran Volkan Demirel.

We don’t doubt suggestions that Ospina might want to leave, however, as with most reports claiming an Arsenal player is heading to Turkey we’re taking it with a pinch of Salt Bae.
