Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina has revealed he is open to the idea of leaving the Gunners and complete a switch to Fenerbahce in the summer transfer window.

The Colombian international has seen his first team opportunities being limited at the north London club. He has been the second choice goalkeeper in the Premier League, behind Petr Cech.

Ospina made 13 appearances for Arsenal in the 2016/17 season out of which only two were in the Premier League. He got his chance in the top flight club competition in England after Cech picked up a calf injury in the Gunners' 3-0 defeat to West Bromwich Albion.

The South American goalkeeper replaced the ex-Chelsea star in the first half at the Hawthorns and started in his side's 2-2 draw against Manchester City. However, Ospina was sidelined after picking a back injury in Arsenal's tie against Pep Guardiola's side, which forced Wenger to field the third-choice keeper Emiliano Martinez against West Ham United and he will continue between the posts against Crystal Palace on 10 April.

Lack of playing time at the Emirates has seen Ospina being linked with a move away from his current employers. Turkish publication Milliyet has claimed that the 28-year-old has responded positively to Fenerbahce's interest in securing his services.

"Istanbul may be a new adventure and motivation for me. If my club are persuaded, it's okay for me," The Sun quoted Ospina as saying.

Cech moved to Arsenal from Chelsea in 2015 and has been the first choice 'keeper since then. There have been reports suggesting the 35-year-old could be on his way out of the club in the summer, which has been put to bed by his agent Viktor Kolar.

The situation leaves Ospina with an uphill task to be ahead of Cech in the pecking order at Arsenal, whose contract with the Gunners runs down in 2019. The former Nice man is looking for a summer exit and is not willing to wait for his contract to expire. In order to find regular playing time, he has set his eyes on leaving Wenger's side after the end of the season, the Mirror reported.
