Arsenal to give Ospina permission to leave

Arsenal have granted back-up goalkeeper David Ospina permission to find a new club during the January transfer window according to reports.

The 27-year-old has seen limited first-team action this campaign following the arrival of Premier League veteran Petr Cech from Chelsea.

Ospina paid the price for performing poorly in Champions League outings against Dinamo Zagreb and Olympiakos and has not featured for the Gunners since.

Turkish side Besiktas have previously shown interest in the Colombian, while a number of French clubs may also enquire about Ospina due to his reputation from his time with Ligue 1 outfit Nice.
