Stoke keeper Asmir Begovic announces he wants to go to Liverpool

Asmir Begovic has confirmed he wants to follow manager Tony Pulis through the door at Stoke City.

Following Pulis’ exit, the goalkeeper has gone public to announce that he intends to move to Liverpool this summer.

He said: “I want to start preparing on July 10, with all the players of Liverpool.”

The Bosnian has previously been linked with possible transfers to Manchester United and Liverpool, but is expected to make a £15 million move to Anfield.

If the Reds complete a deal for the 25-year-old, that would pave the way for current stopper Pepe Reina to move to Barcelona.

Meanwhile, the Potters already have 20-year-old Jack Butland lined up as their first-choice keeper after signing him in January.

They are also reported to be lining up a move for FC Twente’s 19-year-old goalkeeper Timo Plattel to provide more competition.

    Mr Parker this article is total and utter rubbish. Reina has no intention of leaving and if you did your research you would know Liverpool are looking for a new keeper to replace Doni who had to retire because of heart problems. Further We would not be wanting to pay £15M for a keeper, I would suggest you have a change of career, I believe the Russian State Circus are looking for clowns.
