Arsenal keeper David Ospina and midfielder Jack Wilshere are courted by two different Turkish clubs, according to reports and Gunners may allow them two leave if they get proper money.
David Ospina, the Colombian keeper is wanted by Fenerbahce as they admire the shot stoppers ability.
The 28-year-old joined The Gunners from Ligue 1 club OGC Nice but though he has played a part in recent seasons, he never established himself as an undisputed first choice for Arsene Wenger’s team.
Petr Cech’s arrival has limited his opportunities only in the cup games and occasional league games, hence he may opt to move as World Cup approaches at the end of this coming season. Also some English and French outlets haven’t ruled out a possible return of him in France as they believe Nantes boss Claudio Ranieri is interested to avail his services.
Jack Wilshere is also speculated to leave as the injury stricken talented midfielder may look for some new inspirations in his new career.
While some believe a move in another premier league club is possible, there are reports emerging that Turkish side Antalyaspor may look to lure the England international. That will be an astonishing move as Wilshere will love to push for a world cup spot next season after his recovery from yet another injury. He has contributed nothing as a Gunners player in the last couple of seasons.
Wilshere has a year left on his contract at the Emirates and according to the Daily Mail is free to leave the club this summer.
The Mail quoted Antalyaspor president Ali Safak Ozturk as saying, “We made an enquiry and are in talks but Arsenal want a lot for Wilshere.” He also admitted the signing their ambitious target will be a difficult job as the player may will be reluctant to join Turkish side.
Wilshere joined Bournemouth on loan last season and featured in 27 league games for them. He was a central character and was influential until he suffered a hairline fracture to his left fibula against Tottenham and missed the rest of the season.
