Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina is on course to make a summer switch to Fenerbahce and will sign a contract worth £2.6m-a-year in the coming days, according to reports.
The Daily Star reveals Ospina has been keen to leave the club due to a lack of regular playing time and Fenerbahce are believed to have offered Arsenal €4m and Ospina a £50k-a-week contract to sign “within a week”.
The Times’ Henry Winter reported the Colombian was in Turkey days previously to force the transfer.
Despite featuring in the Champions League and FA Cup this season, Ospina wants to be a first-choice between the sticks for a new club.
He helped Arsenal win the FA Cup in 2017/18 but wasn’t pleased spending so much of the campaign as understudy to Petr Cech, whose own form was inconsistent at times.
But while keen to leave the club, he hinted Arsenal are yet to accept or reject the €4m bid made by Fenerbahce.
The Gunners have Wojciech Szczesny returning who could provide cover for Ospina, but the Polish international also wants to be first-choice and he may seek an exit to the Serie A this summer as a result.
“I haven’t made my decision yet. I am waiting for Arsenal to decide,” admitted Ospina, as reported by Sporx. “I’m on holiday and it should all be sorted by the time it is over. If Arsenal are not going to give me the playing time I want they can loan me to another club.”
