Arsenal are looking to oust players that are surplus to requirements from their squad at the Emirates Stadium and seem to be on the verge of a departure.

Turkish-Football state that the Gunners have agreed a deal in principle that would see Colombia international move to Besiktas, though it remains to be seen whether a deal would be on-loan or permanent.

Arsenal are looking to offload Ospina after signing Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen and an exit is likely as he has less than 12 months remaining on his deal – although there could be a late twist in the tale.

It is reported that Besiktas are also keeping tabs on Liverpool’s Simon Mignolet and Bursaspor’s┬áHarun Tekin, with the Black Eagles in advanced talks for the latter but are yet to agree a fee with their Super Lig rivals.

Ospina is the first-choice option but Besiktas are keeping their options open, as they seek to land the goalkeeper they can get the best price for.
