Nottingham Forest fans have had a mixed reaction to links with Asmir Begovic.
Begovic has slipped down the pecking order at Bournemouth, and now looks to be third choice in Eddie Howe’s side.
Forest are now listed as a potential suitor for him this summer.
However, many Forest fans feel that he would be too expensive for them to afford.
Being linked with Begovic.— Ed 034 (@dingdinghopkin) May 14, 2019
Would be an absolute quality signing if it happened
More chance of me signing than Begovic.— Craig (@Craig74Davies) May 15, 2019
We need to spend money on another decent forward. Our current keeper was included in the championship team of the season..why replace him.— Darren Clark (@dazzared60) May 15, 2019
Been linked with many xlass players in tye past... Very rarely have we got them though... Begovic would be too good for us haha— Greg (@gregnffcwatson) May 14, 2019
Deary me, do people actually think we've got a chance of signing Begovic? Absolute no chance.— Cameron Clark (@Camclarky) May 14, 2019
I’m not convinced goalkeeper is a priority area this summer! CP kept 15 clean sheets - 4th highest in the league.— Liam Humphreys (@LJHump) May 16, 2019
I’d much prefer to spend that on other positions that I think we need to strengthen more urgently.— Warren Allsworth (@warrenallsworth) May 16, 2019
Costel isn’t the reason we missed top six this season.
If we are looking at a keeper then Westwood is the answer - best in this league by a mile.
Martin O’Neill has made no secret of the fact he wants to make additions at Forest this summer, but he may have to clear players out first.
The Reds have a bloated squad, with 32 players currently on their books.
If Begovic was to join Forest he would be in competition with Jordan Smith and Costel Pantilimon for a place in goal.
Have something to tell us about this article?
