Nottingham Forest are keen on AFC Bournemouth goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.

The Championship side are in the hunt for a new ‘keeper and could target the 31-year-old, according to SDNA.

Begovic has fallen down the pecking order at Premier League side Bournemouth and could be set for a summer departure for more first-team football.

The Bosnia international is a vastly experienced shot stopper and has racked up over 300 games in his career.

He started his career at Portsmouth and went onto play 17 times for the Fratton Park side when they were in the top flight. He also enjoyed loan spells at Belgian side La Louvière, Macclesfield Town, Bournemouth, Yeovil Town and Ipswich Town.

Begovic left Pompey in 2010 to join Stoke City for a fee of around £3.25 million and went onto become a huge player for the Potters. He played 172 times for them, scoring once.

Chelsea swooped to sign him in July 2015 for £8 million. He made 33 appearances during his two years at Stamford Bridge and won the Premier League in 2017 before returning to Bournemouth for a second spell in 2017.

Begovic would be some signing by Nottingham Forest if the rumours are true. He has proven himself to be a top goalkeeper over recent years in the top flight and would certainly be a coup for a Championship side.

He may not get guaranteed first-team action at Bournemouth next season so a move to the Reds would be ideal for him this summer.
