David Ospina is a fellow Colombian, but he has not enjoyed his best year, and is a target for Besiktas. The Super Lig side apparently failed to sign him in January, but will now get the chance to complete the move.
Hector Bellerin is the last player we would want to leave, but having joined up with his Spain international squad, there is worries he may have his head turned. The 21 year-old emerged from their youth academy before making the switch to North London.
