Everton and a number of other clubs, namely Besiktas and ones in France, are said to be eyeing up a move for David Ospina.
The Colombian keeper is widely expected to leave Arsenal this summer after failing to secure the number one shirt and being replaced by Petr Cech.
While he’s done OK when asked to stand in, Dave has never inspired confidence in any of us here at Cannon Towers, despite his stellar display at the World Cup two years ago which wowed us all.
The Turkish side have apparently extended an invitation for Ospina to hold a meeting with them although you’d have to think that his attentions are focused on the Copa America rather than moving at this point.
That doesn’t mean people aren’t working behind the scenes.
Everton have been linked with him since at least the January window and the Mirror claim that they are still interested.
Still only 27, he has plenty of time to work out the issues that have shown up during his time at Arsenal – like his insistence on having a starting position behind his line and half-killing players because of his spatial awareness difficulties.
Besiktas would be willing to pay £3m for the player which is the same amount that Arsenal originally paid.
His market value is around £6m.
He won’t be missed should he go, unless Arsenal fail to bring in a replacement that is.
