Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina is reportedly eager to leave the Emirates, with Turkish giants Besiktas keen to lure him to the Vodafone Arena in January, as claimed by Tuttomercatoweb.
Ospina has made just three appearances for Arsenal this season with all of them coming in the Champions League and the Capital One Cup.
And the 27-year old received some flaks for his performance against Olympiakos in Europe’s elite competition, as his own goal cost the Gunners’ the game and saw them lost at the Emirates to the Greek outfit.
Ospina, 27, is now likely to part ways with the north London club with Petr Cech in the form of his life by helping Arsenal secure a vital victory against Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday night. The victory could play a key role in securing qualification out of the group for Arsenal.
It could be that boss Arsene Wenger has decided to continue starting Cech in the remaining CL games, and as a result, rumours have started gathering pace that Ospina could be set for an exit out of Arsenal and that is what Tuttomercatoweb have claimed.
With the Colombia international open to joining Besiktas in January, Senol Gunes’ side – who are in the Europa League this term – are looking to speed up things in order to clinch the deal soon.
Ospina made 18 Premier League appearances for Arsenal last term, prior to Cech’s arrival at the club – keeping eight clean sheets in the process and ensuring the Gunners finish third at the end of the season.
