- Goalkeeper David Ospina is expected to complete a loan move to Besiktas
- Since he joined the Gunners, he has only played 11 EPL games for Arsenal
- The arrival of goalkeeper Bernd Leno is forcing Ospina out of the Emirates
Arsenal and Colombian goalkeeper David Ospina is now said to be on the verge of completing a loan move to Super Lig side Besiktas.
After the arrival of goalkeeper Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen, David Ospina is believed to be deemed as surplus to requirements and will leave the Emirates stadium.
According to Turkish newspaper Fanatik, Arsenal have agreed a deal to send the two-time FA Cup winner on loan to Besiktas.
Ospina began his career at Atlético Nacional making his debut with the club in 2005 and after achieving two domestic titles with Los Verdolagas, he joined French side Nice.
In 2014, he joined Arsenal on a four-year deal and made his debut on September 23 in the League Cup match against Southampton.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Arsenal manager Unai Emery confirmed that Englishman Danny Welbeck will not leave the Emirates stadium this month despite being linked with a move to Everton.
Welbeck has fallen behind Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette in his preferred center-forward position and has also been linked with a switch to Besiktas.
But Unai Emery who replaced Wenger at the Emirates claimed only Jenkinson, David Ospina and Joel Campbell will be allowed to leave in August.
