Besiktas are set to finalize a summer agreement to sign goalkeeper David Ospina from Arsenal. The Colombian international came close to joining the Turkish outfit in January but manager Arsene Wenger blocked the move at the final hurdle.

Ospina is expected to find a new club over the summer after he was restricted to just four league appearances last season, that too during Petr Cech's absence through injury.

According to Turkish outlet Fanatik, the Turkish champions are sure of getting a deal done in the upcoming transfer window with the player seemingly frustrated with his lack of playing time at the Emirates.

The Colombian's Arsenal career has taken a hampering ever since his horror show in the 3-2 defeat to Olympiakos during the Champions League group stages last term.
