According to a report in The Sun, Chelsea are eyeing a move for Egypt goalkeeper Ahmed El-Shenawy as question marks remain over the future of fellow shot-stopper Asmir Begovic.

Begovic joined the Blues from Stoke City last summer, trading the number one spot at the Britannia Stadium to compete with Thibaut Courtois at then Premier League champions Chelsea.

It was a questionable move considering his chances of first-team football were always going to be slim, and now 12 months on he could be on his way out under the new Antonio Conte regime.

Begovic is a top goalkeeper at Premier League level, and one club in particular who are in the market for a reliable number one is Everton following the departure of Tim Howard.

The Toffees have had a topsy-turvy summer thus far with the arrival of new manager Ronald Koeman dominating the headlines, but now all is settled they must go about re-shaping the squad.

A new defender, midfielder, winger and forward are very much on the supporters’ wish-list this summer but arguably the most important position to strengthen is between the sticks.

Joel Robles has proved himself to be a decent back-up keeper at the top level, yet if Everton have aspirations of a top six spot next season they must bring in a quality number one.

Begovic, 29, seemingly fits the bill perfectly and his current situation at Chelsea could give the Merseyside club the chance to sign him for a potential bargain fee.

The Bosnia and Herzegovina international is entering the prime of his career and with over 150 Premier League under his belt Everton will struggle to find a better option in the market this summer.
