The Turkish newspaper reports that officials from the club will fly out to London this week in order to thrash out a deal. Fenerbahce are hopeful that a compromise can be reached with the Gunners, but if they fail in their attempts, they will sign Malaga’s Carlos Kameni instead.
The Cameroonian keeper has been hotly tipped to make the switch to Turkey with the 33 year old being seen as a cheaper option to Ospina, but it seems Fenerbahce have put his move to Istanbul on hold until they are sure they can’t secure a deal for Ospina.
Arsenal have steadfastly held to their €4million (£3.5m) asking price for the Colombian international but it seems the Turkish side will look to wear down their resistance with a further round of talks scheduled.
There are very few other suitors for Ospina. Nantes pulled out of a deal for the keeper last week with their deputy general manager describing the move as financially “unfeasible” for the French club.
