Fenerbahce Could Be a 'New Adventure' for Arsenal's Colombian Keeper David Ospina

​Arsenal have had their fair share of speculation surrounding the future's of a number of the clubs prized assets, including Gunners favourites Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil in recent weeks. Sanchez and Ozil are both out of contract next summer, and are both yet to finalise upon a renewal at the club.

However according to Turkish newspaper Milliyet, via Sport Bible, there has emerged another notable squad member which could possibly be making a dash for the exit door at the Emirates come the summer transfer window, in the shape of Colombian keeper David Ospina.


According to the paper, Super Lig side Fenerbahce are keen to take Petr Cech's trusted understudy away from the Premier League. Amongst the rumouring, Ospina allegedly revealed:  "Istanbul may be a new adventure and motivation for me. If my club are persuaded, it's okay for me ."

A differing report has also suggested that the north London club have already supposedly accepted  a £6m offer for the tenacious 28-year-old shot stopper. 

Arsenal's number 13 is said to be frustrated with the lack of game time at the Premier League outfit this season, and could head for pastures new, as he searches for more regular first team opportunities.

The former Nice keeper has only managed to make a shallow 13 appearances  for Arsene Wenger's squad  this season, being preferred  by Le Prof' as the club's cup competition keeper, predominantly  in the FA Cup and the Champions League. 


With Arsenal crashing out of the Champions League at the hands of the dominant Bayern Munich in the round of 16, Ospina's future opportunities to pull the gloves on may only be limited to those within the FA Cup.

Arsenal will face Manchester City at Wembley in the semi-final's of the world's oldest and grandest club competition on the 23rd of April, so that particular date could well be the next and final time we see Ospina sport a Gunners jersey between the sticks.
