Arsenal have been sensational in the transfer window so far as the new manager of the Gunners is enforcing the squad to grab the desired victory they have been searching for last decades. Arsenal were trophyless last time which triggered the departure of their veteran manager Arsene Wenger. A new era has arised at Emirates where Unai Emery is selected as the boss, though there is still one major problem that the manager has not solved yet- the futures of Ospina and Cech.
The former PSG manager is known for his French league success and presenting PSG at its golden position ever. Arsenal is reconstructing their squad and have done some important additions too. Papastathopoulos in defense, Lichtsteiner in full back and Bernd Leno in keeping are one of them.
It was expected that arrival of the German keeper would definitely trigger the departure of one of their own. Petr Cech and David Ospina were the options the Gunners had and they chose Ospina to go.
According to the rumours, Ospina is dealing the verge towards the exit with a expected move to Besiktas. Ospina had a fine World Cup campaign and he is willing to have some more match times. Staying in Arsenal would never fetch him the match times he is seeking to have.
The Gunners are demanding a deal of £7.1m, and Besiktas are the leaders in the race to grab the Colombian. Besiktas are targeting three keepers in this window that are Ospina, Simon Mignolet and Harun Tekin as Fabri joined Fulham for a £5.3m move.
Ospina is their major choice though the release money may bring in some difficulties for the Super Ligue side. The Black Eagles are trying to do a loan facility with an option to buy. Colombia lost in the Last 16 on penalties against England, though Ospina had nothing to do with that. He started every game for his national side over the course of the tournament.
Where in club football he made only 21 appearances for Arsenal last season in which just five of them were in the Premier League. Arsenal failed terribly in the Premier League and there would be no Champions League for the Premier League side this season.
On the other hand, the Turkish side had reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League last season, equalling their best ever European campaign. As the Turkish outlets suggest, the Black Eagles are planning a loan offer that would include a £1.8m fee.
Additionally, they may propose a deal which may include a £3.5m buyout clause option. Espanyol star David Lopez is the alternator option the Turkish side is hoping for. Though Ospina would be a better choice as they suggested him as their priority. Arsenal have also targeted Sevilla midfielder Steven N’Zonzi to enforce their midfield options.
The World Cup winner has been on the radar of the Londoners for quite some time now, who have an amount of €40m on his release clause, though the reports suggest that Arsenal are attempting to lower the asking price for the former Blackburn Stoke star. Moreover, Arsenal is on the verge on a new era which may change their life though either in both directions.
