Bournemouth

Cherries considering move for Gala keeper - Report

24th April 2019, 15:40 by Simon Barlow

Galatasaray keeper Fernando Muslera has emerged as a cheaper option than Jack Butland as Bournemouth look to recruit a new number one.

And reports in Turkey suggest the Uruguayan would fancy a move to the Premier League.

Newspaper Aksam claims Crystal Palace and Bournemouth have shown interest in the 32-year-old but negotiations have not yet taken place.

Cherries boss Eddie Howe is on the lookout for a new keeper after Asmir Begovic's below-par campaign.

The Bosnia international was dropped midway through the season as Howe resorted back to Artur Boruc - but neither would appear to be ideal solutions for him at the moment.

Muslera has been at Galatasaray for eight years and has got Champions League football and World Cup finals appearances on his CV.

Paris Saint-Germain were linked to him in January but he rejected the chance to go there because he didn't want to play second fiddle.

The report also claims that both Palace and Bournemouth are interested in Stoke City's Butland but fear the Championship club's asking price, likely to be in excess of £25million, will be too much.
