Premier League giants Liverpool and Manchester United are said to be on high alert after learning that Stoke City will make highly-rated goalkeeper Asmir Begovic available this summer, according to the Metro.
Potters boss Mark Hughes has ditched the Bosnian international in recent weeks, instead opting to go with England youth goalkeeper Jack Butland, whom he feels is ready to take the step up and become their first choice stopper.
With just one-year remaining on his deal at the Britannia, Hughes is keen to cash in on the 27-year-old and used the funds he receives to strengthen other areas of his squad.
Begovic himself is also reluctant to commit himself to the club, as he is aware that a number of top teams from all across Europe are keeping a close watch on him.
Manchester United, Real Madrid, Chelsea and Liverpool have all been linked with making a move for him in the past, and they would have to cough up around £8m to land his signature.
