Olympiacos Wants Summer Move For Ex-Chelsea Star

Bournemouth goalkeeper Asmir Begovic is reportedly the subject of interest from Greek Super League giants Olympiacos with the view of a possible move during this summer’s transfer window.

This is according to Greek news outlet Sdna which revealed that Olympiacos are targeting a move for Bosnian shot stopper Begovic.

Olympiacos have lost the league title in the last two seasons and they are keen to rebuild their playing squad ahead of the new season which starts in few weeks time.

Asmir Begovic was previously on the payroll at newly crowned Europa League winners Chelsea before he left to join fellow Premier League outfit Bournemouth two years ago.

The 32-year-old was part of the Chelsea team that won the Premier League title under the guidance of Italian tactician Antonio Conte during the 2016/17 campaign.

Asmir Begovic is said to be in favour of a new challenge away from Bournemouth this summer after losing his place to veteran goalkeeper Arthur Boruc and then young shot stopper Mark Travers in the second half of last season.

The former Chelsea goalkeeper was effectively the third choice goalkeeper by the time the season ended in May.

Apart from Greek giants Olympiacos, Asmir Begovic has also been linked with West Ham United and Watford in the Premier League.

He has just two years left on his Bournemouth contract which runs out in 2021.
