David Ospina is ready to end his ‘nightmare’ in the English Premier League by leaving Arsenal in the summer to join up with Besiktas, according to Fanatik.
The Colombian international is frustrated at the lack of trust in his ability and is worried that a lack of regular first team action could scupper his bid to star at next summers World Cup to be held in Russia., the 28-year-old goalkeeper is currently second choice at the Emirates, behind Petr Cech, and is understood not to be happy with that arrangement.
Fanatik reports that Ospina is being monitored by Turkish Super League outfit, Besiktas who made a move for him in January, but the deal fell through as both clubs could not reach a deal.
It is believed that the Turkish giants are preparing a four year deal and wages in the region of £40k a week to lure him to Istanbul, in a deal thought to be in the region of £5m, a fee believed to be enough to sway Arsenal’s stance on selling the impressive stopper.
Ospina is used regularly in the cup competitions, while Cech is preferred in the league. The Colombian is currently out injured as he suffered a nasty collision with Nicolas Otamendi in the 2-2 draw with Manchester City last weekend while Cech remains on the sidelines as our season lurches from bad to worse.
