Begovic has plied his professional trade in England for the last 14 years, representing a pletora of sides before making his name at Stoke in 2010.

The Bosnian spent five years with the Potters before joining Chelsea, where he would spend two seasons. 

Begovic left Stamford Bridge for Bournemouth in 2017 and has gone on to make 62 appearances for the Cherries in the Premier League. 

The experienced shot-stopper fell out of favour half way throught the previous campiagn and has been tipped to leave the Vitality Stadium this summer. 

Neil Lennon’s side have emrged as surprise contenders to sign Begovic, with the report claiming the Hoops have been monitoring the player in the current window. 

Celtic’s current number one, Scott Bain, impressed at Celtic Park last season, so speculation regarding a move for Begovic apepars to be strange.
