The 27-year-old has just over a year left on his contract and has been linked with a move away from the Potters over the last few weeks. Stoke boss Mark Hughes already has a great replacement for the Bosnian at the club in the shape of England international Jack Butland. The 22-year-old has played three of their last four games, perhaps giving a hint as to who Hughes thinks will be his number one next season.

Manchester United and Chelsea may be interested in the keeper as they both have goalies potentially leaving in the summer. At the Red Devils he could take over from David De Gea, while Petr Cech could leave a spot for him at Stamford Bridge.

Meanwhile Liverpool and Arsenal are both in need of new stoppers due to the form of their current men between the sticks. Simon Mignolet has been poor for the Reds, while Wojciech Szczesny and David Ospina have both made mistakes throughout the Gunners’ campaign.

With all four clubs able to offer Begovic European football, anyone of them could get the ‘keeper to force a move if they announced their intentions.
