Report claims Asmir Begovic could be sold for £8 million, should Tottenham be keen?

Asmir Begovic Stoke V Arsenal

Stoke City look set to say goodbye to Asmir Begovic. Could he replace Hugo Lloris at Tottenham?

It was reported by The Guardian last month that Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was considering his future with the club.

He reportedly wants Champions League football, which Spurs cannot offer him, as they have failed in a bid to finish in the Premier League top four.

PSG and Manchester United have both been linked with a move for Lloris, so who should replace the Frenchman if he does force a move away from the club?

News today seems to suggest they could finally get their hands on a player they tried to sign in 2010.

The Stoke Sentinel is reporting that Stoke City keeper Asmir Begovic is available this summer for a fee in the region of £8 million. The Bosnian has recently been dropped after a fall-out with Mark Hughes, with Jack Butland stepping up in his absence.

Tottenham tried in vain to sign Begovic five years ago when he was at Portsmouth. They paid Portsmouth £1m for first-option on Begovic in January 2010, when Pompey were going through horrific financial issues.

However Begovic did not make the move and Tottenham had to fight to get their money back, as reported in The Telegraph five years ago.

If Lloris does go, then we might finally get to see Begovic playing at Tottenham Hotspur.
