Bournemouth goalkeeper Asmir Begovic will reportedly hold crunch talks with the South Coast club over his future at the Vitality Stadium.

This is according to the publication from the stables of the Daily Star which claimed that Asmir Begovic is fed up with his non-activity at Bournemouth dating back to last season and he could leave the club this summer.

The Bosnia and Herzegovina shot-stopper is said to be attracting the interest of Scottish Premiership champions Celtic and Premier League club Watford.

Asmir Begovic was on the books at West London giants Chelsea before moving to Bournemouth where he established himself as the undisputed first-choice goalkeeper.

His position as changed in the past months after Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe dropped him for veteran Polish goalkeeper Arthur Boruc.

Former Celtic shot-stopper Boruc had been the first choice goalkeeper at Bournemouth before Asmir Begovic joined him at the Vitality Stadium from Chelsea two years ago.

Begovic, 32, is presently rated at around £10m which represents a moderate amount for interested clubs like Celtic and Watford.

He has also played for Stoke City in English football apart from the duo of Chelsea and Bournemouth.

Asmir Begovic was part of the Chelsea squad that won the 2016/17 Premier League title under the guidance of new Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte.
