Would you believe it? David Ospina has been linked with a move to Turkey. Again.
Reports from Turkey *cough*, claim the 29-year-old has been offered to Fenerbahce’s new sporting director, Damien Comolli, via third-party agents. Quite what that means, we’ve no idea. What’s his actual agent doing?
You’d think the Colombia international was born in Istanbul, so regularly is he tipped to sign for one of the Super Lig’s top clubs.
A cursory search of “Ospina Turkey” brings up this on Arseblog News…
15 June 2015 – Ospina linked with Fenerbahce move
2 June 2016 – Besiktas confirm Ospina interest
3 April 2017 – Fenerbahce target €7 million deal for Ospina
7 June 2017 – Report: Ospina to complete Fenerbahce move next week
There are loads more stories tipping him to quit the Emirates, including links with a return to Nantes and a move to the MLS.
And yet, Dave never leaves. In fact, you rarely even hear him complaining about his circumstances at Arsenal, despite being ensconced as the team’s second choice keeper behind Petr Cech.
Will he go this year? He might. After all, he’s only got one year left on his contract and we’re being heavily tipped to sign Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen.
That said, the Turkey links…well, we’ll take them with a pinch of Salt Bae’s finest.
