During the summer, reports surfaced that Arsenal’s second choice goalkeeper David Ospina could end up in Besiktas and now the Goalkeeper in keen on joining the Turkish outfit according to Tutto Mercato Web via metro.
The 27-year-old Columbian has been a fringe goalkeeper this season for Arsenal. He has been in gola three times for Arsenal with the latest being their Champions League match against Olympiacos where he made a school boy mistake that led to a goal.
With the eye-catching performance of Petr Cech for Arsenal, there is absolutely no chance Ospina to return in goal for Arsenal and he is now likely to leave.
Arsene Wenger received several tongue lashings from fans and pundits for not fielding Petr Cech in the Champions League. With the world class saves of Petr Cech in the last two matches, Petr has stolen Wenger’s heart and will remain in goal for Arsenal.
However, with the current situation of Ospina at Arsenal, Besiktas are currently monitoring the situation and will take advantage of his situation to land him.
The 27-year-old Columbian was a revelation for Arsenal last season, helping them end the season as third placed team in the League. He kept eight clean sheet in the 18 times that he appeared in the League.
