Arsenal are battling hard to rejuvenate their side in the transfer market and, with reports suggesting they’re closing in on major signings, will shift attention towards outgoing deals.

The Gunners have already landed Stephan Lichtsteiner on a free transfer from Juventus and are now said to be set to secure three further additions in the form of Sampdoria’s Lucas Torreira, Bayer Leverkusen’s Bernd Leno and Borussia Dortmund’s Sokratis Papastathopoulos.

With Germany international Leno set to become Unai Emery’s new first-choice goalkeeper at the Emirates Stadium, pushing veteran Petr Cech to an understudy role, Arsenal will see Colombia international David Ospina become surplus to requirements.

The SunĀ suggests an exit for Ospina is likely, with Turkish giants Fenerbache once again linked with the experienced stopper and Mexican side Tigres looking to bring the keeper back across the Atlantic.

Any deal for the 28-year-old is unlikely to be completed until after the World Cup in Russia, where Ospina is representing his nation once again.
