Greeks keen on Bournemouth star

1st July 2019, 04:51 by Michael Holland

Asmir Begovic could be offered a route out of Bournemouth following reports Greek side Olympiakos are keen to do a deal.

Begovic has been heavily linked with a move away from the Vitality Stadium after slipping down the pecking order, and the chance to move to Greece could appeal to the Bosnian.

Begovic lost his place to Artur Boruc last season, while youngster Mark Travers also came in and impressed towards the end of the campaign and will be knocking on the door again.

With boss Eddie Howe also on the look-out for a new keeper, the writing appears to be on the wall for Begovic, who is now weighing up his options.

Reports in the Greek press claim Olympiakos are looking to sign an experienced goalkeeper to compete with Jose Sa, and Begovic is the man they want.

There is also talk of Turkish side Fenerbahce lining up a swoop for the 32-year-old, who is under contract with the Cherries until June 2021.
