A number of Premier League clubs are weighing up moves for Hull City goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Jakupovic was one of Hull's shining lights last season despite their relegation from the Premier League and they face a battle to keep hold of him now they are in the Championship.

The 32-year-old firmly established himself as Hull's first-choice goalkeeper last season after four seasons of playing back-up keeper at the KCOM Stadium.

Jakupovic worked his way to becoming Marco Silva's No.1 keeper following his arrival as manager in January and the Switzerland international repaid the manager's faith with string of impressive displays.

Hull face a battle to keep hold of Jakupovic this summer in the wake of their relegation with several Premier League sides monitoring his situation.

The likes of Leicester City, Crystal Palace,Watford and Swansea are all keen on Jakupovic as they look to bolster their goalkeeping options ahead of next season.

Leicester are looking to bolster their goalkeeping options this summer amid talk they could lose Kasper Schmeichel, while Marco Silva could be keen on being reunited with Jakupovic at Watford. Crystal Palace and Swansea would both be interested in strengthening their depth in that position.

Jakupovic is entering the final year of his contract at Hull and the club are bracing themselves for bids for the popular goalkeeper this summer.
