DONE : South-American star agrees Arsenal transfer, 4-years deal agreed
For Arsenal, this is a season to forget as the Club slipped out of the first quartet of the Premier League table for the first time in a very long while and Champions League qualification already looks bleak.The failing of this Club this term might heavily impart on who remains or joins the club in the summer despite the Gunners rich history for nurturing and improving players. It is often said that you cannot have more than XI players on the pitch of play and it appears that South-American Arsenal shot stopper is tired of playing second fiddle to Petr Cech. David Ospina has informed Arsenal that he wants out of the Emirates so as to play regularly, reports Fanatik, via Daily Cannon.
Ospina usurped Arsenal on loan goalkeeper to Roma Woijciech Szczesny to a place in the first team of Arsenal but Arsenal’s acquisition of Petr Cech from Chelsea in the penultimate season saw him lost his place as first choice goalie.
Ospina was linked with a move to the Turkish League last summer but he chose to stay put at the Emirates. However, he is now in the want of a move and has even agreed personal terms with Fenerbahce according to the same report.
Ospina made bare his mind about a probable transfer while speaking to Turkish media outlet.
“I told my club [Arsenal] that I want to go to a team where I’ll play regularly,” he said.
“They know my intention. If the right offer comes, then I’ll happily come to Turkey.
“My agent is taking care of transfer business. In fact, I’m happy at Arsenal but I have to play regularly.
“I told them exactly that. Arsenal’s board told me they will not be making things difficult for me if the right offer comes in. “Let’s see what the future brings.”
Ospina has pulled off so many stunning stops, blocks and finger-tip acrobatics while starring in Arsenal for the Champions League. He played for Arsenal throughout in their Champions League campaign.
The report claims Arsenal will accept £3m fee for the shot stopper who is expected to sign a four year deal.
