Bosnian media are reporting that Liverpool have agreed a deal to sign Stoke City goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.
Begovic, 25, has been linked with a move to Anfield to replace Pepe Reina this summer – should the Spaniard return to Barcelona.
Sarajevo-based paper Dnevni Avaz report “that everything has been arranged and is waiting for a signature”.
They claim that Begovic wishes to start pre-season at Liverpool on July 10th, but that Arsenal are still interested in negotiating a deal for the highly-rated Bosnian shot stopper.
Begovic signed for Stoke from Portsmouth in 2010. The Potters, who parted company with manager Tony Pulis today, have already signed England under-21 keeper Jack Butland from Birmingham as a replacement for Begovic.
Winger Stewart Downing has previously been linked with a move in the opposite direction in any deal for Begovic.
