The Telegraph are running with Begovic stating "I want to start preparing on July 10, with all the players of Liverpool.â€Begovic, 25, has been linked with a move to Anfield to replace Pepe Reina this summer â€“ should the Spaniard return to Barcelona.
Sarajevo-based paper Dnevni Avaz report â€œthat everything has been arranged and is waiting for a signatureâ€.
They claim that Begovic wishes to start pre-season at Liverpool on July 10th, but that Arsenal are still interested in negotiating a deal for the highly-rated Bosnian shot stopper.
Begovic signed for Stoke from Portsmouth in 2010. The Potters, who parted company with manager Tony Pulis today, have already signed England under-21 keeper Jack Butland from Birmingham as a replacement for Begovic.
Winger Stewart Downing has previously been linked with a move in the opposite direction in any deal for Begovic
So I think this transfer looks definitely on the cards. Cant say I am overly impressed and it signals Pepe's departure. Certainly not a bad keeper, but I dont think he is a great one either.
