Besiktas confirm pursuit of Arsenal keeper Ospina

Turkish club Besiktas have revealed that they are indeed in pursuit of Arsenal's David Ospina.

The Colombian goalkeeper has been heavily linked with the Istanbul giants in recent months and that interest has now been confirmed by sporting director Gokhan Keskin.

"Nothing has been agreed on yet but we are targeting Ospina," Keskin told local radio station Radyospor.

Ospina, 27, joined the Gunners from Nice in the summer of 2014 but made just 12 appearances in all competitions last season following the arrival of Petr Cech from Chelsea.
