Reports suggest the Potters goalkeeper has emerged as a target for Premier League heavyweights Arsenal and Liverpool with the player himself acknowledging he has personal ambitions.

"It's very flattering," Begovic told Sky Sports News.

"It's positive feedback from other teams that people are looking at you and mentioning you with those teams.

"It's no secret that everyone has their own ambitions and they want to be playing at the highest level possible.

"But right now I'm just focused on taking Stoke forward and I think the club here has a lot of ambitions; the chairman, the manager and everyone else included.

"So we just want to keep pushing this club forwards and see how far we can take it."

The 25-year-old Bosnia international kept his eighth clean sheet of the campaign at Aston Villa on Saturday and claims it is a record he is proud of.

"It matters a lot to us, especially us at the back," he added.

"It's what we work for and that's our main goal of the game."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
