The report claims that Besiktas have three goalkeeper targets following Fabri joining Fulham on a £5.3m move, Ospina, Simon Mignolet and Harun Tekin.

Turkish-Football reported that Besiktas are keen on Ospina but his fees could prove a sticking point.

The Black Eagles are keen on negotiating a better deal for Ospina or a loan deal with an option to buy.

Ospina has fallen down the pecking order at Arsenal following the transfer of Bernd Leno.

The keeper is now third-choice keeper at the North London based outfit and has been told he can leave by the club.

The Arsenal keeper has yet to return to pre-season training after being given an extended break following the World Cup.

Colombia crashed out in the Last 16 on penalties against England, Ospina started every game for his national side over the course of the tournament.
