The West London side are keen to bring in a more effective back-up for keeper Petr Cech having seemingly given up on Ross Turnbull, who has only managed two clean sheets in 19 Chelsea appearances.
Tony Pulis is sure to fight off interest in his number one custodian but could struggle to keep Begovic’s head from being turned by interest from the reigning Champions League champions.
Chelsea have a ready made back-up in the form of Thiabaut Courtois but the young Belgian is currently on a season long loan spell at Atletico Madrid and as such may not be available for a recall, hence the Blues switching attention to Begovic.
The former Portsmouth keeper has been in excellent form this term and has as a result been linked with interest from a number of Premier League sides eager to tempt the 25 year old from the Britannia Stadium.
