Asmir Begovic: Continues to be linked with Premier League heavyweights

The Potters shot-stopper has been the subject of intense transfer speculation for some time, with each passing window bringing a fresh round of rumours.

January has come and gone, however, with Begovic still on the books at the Britannia Stadium.

The likes of Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United are all reported to be monitoring his situation and a big-money approach could be made in the summer - especially if the Bosnia international impresses at the 2014 World Cup.

Begovic is reading little into the gossip, though, and will continue to give his all for Stoke until a formal approach is made.

He said in The Sun: "It's nice to hear positive things when big names in the game compliment you.

"It gives you extra motivation to do more and work harder every day.

"But I have always been happy at Stoke.

"I am developing and still young. Until something concrete comes up, you just focus on your job."

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!
