David Ospina

Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina understood to be nearing a move to the Turkish Super Lig giants Fenerbahce.

According to the daily Turkish newspaper Aksam, the Yellow Canaries have held transfer talks with Arsenal.

Per the source, the negotiations were successful and a deal between the two clubs has been agreed.

Fenerbahce are expected to sign a new first-choice goalkeeper this summer following a difficult season for Volkan Demirel. Meanwhile, the Mexican outlet Closs Continental has linked Ospina with a move to Tigres.

A deal is unlikely to be wrapped up before the World Cup group stages kick-off this week. The tournament starts on Friday and Ospina is expected to start for Columbia when they take on Japan next week.

Ospina has 12 months remaining on his current contract with Arsenal and made 21 appearances for the Gunners last season.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are understood to be on the verge of signing Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen for £22 million.
