Arsene Wenger in talks with Turkish side to conclude the transfer of two players


Arsenal will hold talks with Turkish side Besiktas to complete the transfers of goalkeeper David Ospina and defender Mathieu Debuchy.

The Colombian has made it clear that he will not spend another season warming the bench at the Emirates especially after yet another impressive tournament with his national team.

The 27-year-old made a number of spectacular saves in Colombia’s 2-1 win against Paraguay in the Copa America and was his side hero's against Peru as he saved two penalties.

Besiktas' interest for the goalkeeper was confirmed by sporting director Gokhan Keskin at the start of the month.

They are also interested in signing the French defender on loan.

Debuchy lost his regular place in Arsene Wenger's side after Hector Bellerin's impressive performances on the wing and like the Colombian he will surely leave the club in the summer.
