It’s clear to see the Gunners want to get business done early this summer and will look to get rid of multiple first team names before signing anyone else.

Next up on the list is David Ospina, who is ready to seal a permanent transfer to Fenerbache after the clubs agreed on a transfer fee in the region of £3million.

According to Turkish media outlet, Fanatik, the goalkeeper has already met to discuss personal terms earlier in the year and is looking to sign on the dotted line.

The 28-year-old has been desperate to get hold of the number one jersey but simply can’t compete with Arsene Wenger’s massively high admiration of Petr Cech.

Instead of suffering another season sat as our back-up, the Colombian has taken action and could link up with Fenerbache as early as next week after completing his international duties.

Ospina has always had a tough time and although he could be regarded as our first-choice in two years time, he’s not keen to waste another day of his career.

You can’t blame the man if we’re honest, and it’s always such a difficult thing to have a goalkeeper good enough and satisfied with playing once or twice every month.

This transfer raises more concerns over the future of Arsenal’s goalkeeping situation though, with Wojciech Szczesny expected to join Juventus this summer.

That would leave Wenger with just Cech and Emiliano Martinez in the picture, meaning he could well go back out into the market to sign someone capable of challenging the duo.
