Arsenal stopper David Ospina has reportedly agreed on personal terms with Turkish giants Besiktas.

The Colombia international stopper has spent the last four campaigns at the Emirates Stadium, making 70 appearances.

However, the South American stopper is believed to have become surplus to requirements at the North London club following the arrival of German goalkeeper Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen.

According to Sky Sports News, Ospina has been told by Unai Emery that he can leave the Gunners, and Turkish giants Besiktas are believed to be on the brink of securing the services of 29-year-old forward.

Napoli and Sevilla have also been rumoured with a move for the South American goalkeeper, who has two years left on his current deal with the Gunners.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have already allowed Lucas Perez to leave the club on a permanent basis after Spanis forward finalised £4 million switch to London rivals West Ham United on the deadline day of the summer transfer window last night.
