Club Officials Push For Arsenal Transfer Deal After London Talks, World Cup Star Gives Green Light For Negotiations With Super Lig Giants

Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina has been closely linked with a summer exit after entering the last 12 months on his contract.

The Gunners have yet to offer a new deal for the Colombia international who has been pushed further down the pecking order after the transfer of Bernd Leno.

Fenerbahce have made the keeper a transfer priority.

Turkish-Football reported last week that Fenerbahce club president Ali Koc had travelled to London and was spotted at the Dorchester Hotel.

The Yellow Canaries delegation held talks with representatives from several clubs including Arsenal regarding Ospina.

Fenerbahce sporting director Damien Comolli also travelled London for another round of talks with the Gunners over striking a deal for the keeper.

The Istanbul outfit want Ospina on a permanent deal but have yet to agree a transfer fee with Arsenal.

Ospina is aware of his situation at Arsenal after the arrival of Leno and is considering his options.

Colombia and Galatasaray goalkeeping legend Faryd Mondragon has urged Ospina to consider leaving Arsenal for a side where he will be first-choice.

Mondragon told Goal at World Cup 2018: “Players need game time to get used to the pace of competition.

“It would be better for him to have more continuity and I am sure he is contemplating that option because he could play for any club in the world.”

Fenerbahce have also held discussions with the player’s agent.

Ospina is currently on international duty in Russia. After a disappointing opener in the 2-1 defeat against Japan, the goalkeeper put on an impressive showing as Colombia held a clean sheet in the 3-0 victory over Poland.
