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.
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.
