Fenerbahce have allegedly agree to pay Arsenal €7m for David Ospina.
- Ospina wants to leave Arsenal
- Gunners set to receive €7m from Turkish club for unsettled goalkeeper
- Previous reports said only €3m
- Trabzonspor also interested
According to Fichajes, Fenerbahec and Arsenal have reached an agreement over the signing of Ospina.
The 28-year-old apparently previously reached a private agreement with Arsenal that he will be allowed to leave in the summer after making it clear that he was open to a move. Both Fenerbahce and Trabzonspor have been said to be interested, with Fenerbahce reportedly in the advanced stages of a deal.
The Colombia international hasn’t been happy being second choice goalkeeper since he signed from Nice in 2014. While Arsene Wenger clearly allowed him to be Arsenal’s ‘Champions League keeper’ this season in a bid to settle him, it didn’t work and he still wants to leave, which most Arsenal fans are certainly not opposed to.
Ospina’s Arsenal contract runs out in 2019 but it’s apparently been understood by the club and player that this season will be his last in north London.
Fenerbahce are said to be willing to pay €7m (£5.9m) despite recent reports claiming they would only going to pay €3m (£2.5m). This seems a lot considering €3m was apparently too high before.
