Stoke goalkeeper set to follow Tony Pulis out of the Britannia Stadium.
Stoke goalkeeper Asmir Begovic is reportedly ready to complete a move to Liverpool according to Goal.com.
The Bosnian stopper has put in a number of highly impressive performances over the last few seasons and is widely respected as one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League.
The likes of Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham were all thought to be showing an interest in the player.
But it appears that Liverpool have stolen a march on their rivals and are ready to bring the player to Anfield.
It is thought that the departure of Tony Pulis added to Begovic’s desire to leave the Brittania Stadium and the 25 year old has seemingly revealed his exit after giving an interview in his native Bosnia.
“I want to start preparing on July 10, with all the players of Liverpool,’ said Begovic.
Begovic’s arrival is likely to raise questions over the future of their current number Pepe Reina. There has been constant speculation over the Spanish goalkeeper’s future in recent months as he has been regularly linked with a move to Barcelona as replacement for the outgoing Victor Valdes.
Both club and player have denied that Reina is set to leave Liverpool but it seems unlikely that the club will have splashed out on Begovic, only for the player to sit on the bench.
