Asmir Begovic: Bosnia goalkeeper is enjoying life at Stoke City

The highly-rated Bosnia goalkeeper was subject to interest from various top European sides and, despite admitting to being flattered by the interest, he decided to remain at the Britannia Stadium.

"I'm happy because I stayed at Stoke City," he told Mundo.

"I feel great here and I love my football here, but I can't hide the fact that it was nice to be linked with so many big clubs."

Begovic is keen to continue his development at Stoke this season and he believes the speculation will help him improve, while hinting that he may be open to offers in the future.

"The interest motivates me even more and I would really like to become an even better goalkeeper," he added.

"I'm a very ambitious guy but then again, I'm pleased with the club where I'm currently playing."

Begovic's Bosnia and Herzegovina side currently top World Cup qualifying Group G and look set to be involved in next year's competition in Brazil.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
