The 26-year-old keeper is coming off the back of a Copa America quarter-final finish and kept three clean sheets throughout the competition.

Marseille will face competition for Ospina’s signature from Turkish giants Fenerbahçe. The Yellow Canaries are on the verge of completing the €5 million Ospina according to Fanatik.

Ospina recently stated that he would only enter talks after the Copa America and asked reporters to speak to his agent about the link to Fenerbahçe.

The Colombian international averaged 1.94 shots per-game last season and kept a total of 10 clean sheets over the course of the season.

The Istanbul giants are also in talks with Manchester United winger Nani and striker Robin van Persie.
