Besiktas have re-entered negotiations with Arsenal over signing David Ospina, according to reports.
The Turkish outfit are seriously keen on the Colombia international but were said to be unwilling to meet the Gunners asking price. Besiktas had opened talks with Arsenal before and those talks broke down after the Gunners asked for a transfer fee of £3m which the Turkish giants deemed too high.
According to Footmac via Talksport, Besiktas have renewed their interest in Ospina and are planning to meet Arsenal’s £3m demand.
Ospina is believed to be interested in a move to Istanbul and would definitely be hoping both clubs reach an agreement this time around.
The goalkeeper spent last season as back up to Petr Cech and Besiktas have now promised him the opportunity to play regular football,
The Turkish giants will be participating in next season’s Champions League and that has also enticed the Gunners’ goalie.
Ospina showed his quality in the just concluded Copa America where he was one of the best players in the Colombia team helping his team to 3rd place in the tournament.
The goalkeeper joined Arsenal from Nice in 2014 and never really had the chance to be Arsenal’s first choice goalkeeper.
