AC Milan are eyeing up another deal for Bournemouth goalkeeper Asmir Begovic, having ‘identified’ him as an ideal back up for Gianluigi Donnarumma.
Begovic spent the second half of last season on loan from Bournemouth, having spent the first half of the campaign with Qarabağ Ağdam.
That loan is set to expire at the end of this month when he will be returning to Bournemouth to work out his future as his contract expires next summer.
He could be ‘set to return’ to Milan, though, according to Tuttosport, who say he has been identified as a replacement for Pepe Reina, who is set to move to a new club.
Corriere back this up, saying that Milan are ‘thinking’ about a move for the Bournemouth man and he would ‘gladly accept’ another year at Milanello as a number two.
Neither newspaper indicates whether it would be another loan or a permanent transfer, although that ‘another year’ line suggests a loan.
Whether Bournemouth would be open to any deal isn’t mentioned either, but what is made clear is that everything is dependant on Pepe Reina’s future.
He has interest from Valencia and Milan are happy to let him go, but so far the deal hasn’t ‘come to a head’ between the two clubs.
He needs to leave before they will pursue a move for Begovic, meaning this potential deal is likely to be in limbo for a while yet.
