According to talkSPORT, Everton are now in talks with Bournemouth over a deal to sign Asmir Begovic, as the Toffees look to replace Robin Olsen.
What is the story?
Well, yesterday we covered the news of Everton’s interest in the 34-year-old.
The story has developed rapidly and Rafa Benitez’s side are now in talks with Scott Parker’s men over a deal for the former Stoke City glover.
TalkSPORT believes Everton wants to strengthen his goalkeeper department, and Benitez sees Begovic as the ideal man.
The Bournemouth No.1 has one more year on his contract at Vitality Stadium.
however, talkSPORT believe the Cherries could let him go for free.
Good competition for Jordan Pickford
Olsen did well to challenge Jordan Pickford at Goodison Park last season.
However, Begovic should be able to offer more behind the scenes.
In that regard, his behind-the-scenes experience could be of tremendous help to those at Goodison Park.
In our opinion – even more so if he’s free – Begovic would be a smart signing for Everton, following Olsen’s return to Roma from José Mourinho.
