Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina has confirmed he would be interested in a move to Fenerbahce this summer.
The Colombia international has long been linked with a move away from the Gunners with the 28-year-old keen for more regular game time, particularly in a World Cup year.
Ospina has largely been used in cup competitions this season and has made 13 appearances in all competitions but just one start in the Premier League.
The Colombia was on course for a run in the team after Petr Cech’s injury but was forced out of the midweek clash with West Ham due to a back problem which is also expected to keep him out of Monday’s game against Crystal Palace.
Ospina has been linked with a move to Fenerbahce and recently and when asked about the speculation he hinted a move could be on the cards.
“Istanbul may be a new adventure and motivation for me. If my club are persuaded, it’s okay for me,” Ospina said via The Sun.

Ospina has been a solid back-up keeper but it would be little surprise if he does move on this summer.
Arsenal have been linked with several goalkeepers already including Kasper Schmeichel and Rui Patricio and it looks as though Ospina could be on the move.
Young Emiliano Martinez is also another option after coming in and keeping a clean sheet against West Ham in midweek, which Wenger admitted he was impressed by.
“He looked composed, quiet, calm [on Wednesday],” Wenger told a pre-match press conference.
“I know personally that he has the quality because I see him every day. I was not surprised by the quality of his game.”
Martinz will be handed another chance to impress on Monday for the trip to Selhurst Park.
