Arsenal face a big rebuild this summer and the Gunners will have to contend with a number of exits from the club, which could include losing an established international.

Colombian stopper David Ospina has been linked with an exit from the Emirates Stadium for a while now, with the South American unhappy with his lack of first-team opportunities, and he’s confirmed to Turkish outlet Fanatik that he’s told the club he wants to leave.

Ospina has been linked with a number of Turkish sides and was quizzed as to whether he would move across Europe, with the international goalkeeper confirming he would consider a move to Turkey.

“I told my club [Arsenal] that I want to go to a team where I’ll play regularly. They know my intention. If the right offer comes, then I’ll happily come to Turkey.”

“My agent is taking care of transfer business. In fact, I’m happy at Arsenal but I have to play regularly. I told them exactly that. Arsenal’s board told me they will not be making things difficult for me if the right offer comes in. Let’s see what the future brings.”

The 28-year-old, signed after Colombia’s impressive campaign at the 2014 World Cup, has made just 24 Premier League appearances for the Gunners during his three-years in English football- with just two appearances in the league this season.

Ospina has been utilised as Arsenal’s cup goalkeeper, a position he’s unhappy with, and a sale this summer seems inevitable.
