Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina could be on his way out of the Emirates Stadium this summer, with a move to Turkish Super Lig side Fenerbahce originally mooted. However, the Colombian shot-stopper could return to the French Ligue 1, with The Sun claiming that Nantes are keen on his signature.

Ospina has grown frustrated with a lack of playing time in the Premier League since his 2014-move from OGC Nice, making just six top-flight appearances in the last two seasons. He featured more heavily upon his initial arrival but was made into a second-choice when Petr Cech was signed from Chelsea.

Ospina has made just 24 Premier League appearances since his 2014-move from OGC Nice, but he’s featured in the FA Cup and Champions League – notably playing in Arsenal’s FA Cup win over Chelsea.

On Sunday afternoon Arsenal face a crucial game in the race for the Champions League spots, as they host third-place Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium.
