Euro giants send official to London for official talks over 28-year-old Arsenal star who wants summer exit
Fenerbahce have sent a club official to London for talks with Arsenal over David Ospina according to reports in Turkey.
Fotospor claim that Fenerbahce have stepped up efforts to sign the Colombian international.
Per the source, the Yellow Canaries have a pre-agreement with Ospina that would see him join on a four-year deal if they were to agree terms with Arsenal.

The latest developments follow a report in Fanatik in which Ospina confirmed that he is open to joining a Turkish team and that he has informed Arsenal that he wants to leave the club.
“My agent is dealing with transfer matters but I will say this, I’ve told Arsenal that I want to leave and I would play in Turkey,” Ospina told Edip Adanir.
“I am actually happy at Arsenal but I want to play regularly, the club understands my situation and will not attempt to block a summer exit.
“We will just have to wait and see what happens next.”
Fenerbahce have been closely linked with the Arsenal star over the past two seasons.
The Yellow Canaries plan to complete their summer transfers before the start of the pre-season.
The board feel that the reason behind their disappointing season is that transfers were left too late and that Dick Advocaat being appointed just a week before the end of the window further complicated matters.
