Bosnia LiverpoolLIVERPOOL have been told they can buy goalkeeper , but only if they meet ’s valuation of £12million.

The Independent are reporting that Stoke City are prepared to let Begovic leave the club this summer, after rumours linking him with Liverpool and Arsenal.

The Bosnia international was one of few positives for the Potters this season, as they finished just 6 points above the drop zone.

Liverpool have been linked with the 25-year-old, with the future of current ‘keeper in doubt. Reina has been linked with a move to , and the Reds have identified the Stoke shot-stopper as the ideal replacement should the Spaniard leave Anfield.

Begovic joined Stoke in 2010, where has become one of the top rated goalkeepers in the league, keeping 12 clean sheets this season.

Chairman Peter Coates has revealed that the club would not get in Begovic’s way if he wanted to leave the club, as long as their valuation was met.

Liverpool have also been rumoured to be monitoring Sunderland goalkeeper . The Belgian kept 11 clean sheets for the Black Cats last season, as they too struggled to survive in the Premier League.

Begovic is expected to feature for Bosnia and Herzegovina on Friday, as his nation face Latvia in a World Cup Qualifier.

    Since suares has made it clear that he can no longer stand the pressure of his mistakes,let him go for the right price.BR should tidy up all his transfer target on time and delay.

    I think we should keep hold of Agger and let reina go so that we can purchase a new goalman

    I think Reina is past it a bit. I think Begovic or Mignolet would be great replacements. If we sell Suarez and say get Mityetarean (spelling) and Benteke, we should have a pretty solid squad. Now we just need to sign Papadopolis for the defense. Benteke, Sturridge, Coutinho up front with the Armenian behind them.

    A real top ruthless manager would buy Begovic and force Reina to stay for one more year as second choice to see how Begovic gets on so he will have someone to fall back on. Unfortunately we have Brenda in charge.

    Suarez should be sold if he can’t face the presure with the help of bringing in new strikers to finish at the top four next season

    The thing is Real Madrid have not offered nothing for Suarez, They are looking at Bale and Cavani first. Yet Suarez, keeps opening his big mouth, can’t the idiot show some loyalty and respect to the club and us fans that have backed him no matter what.

    He needs to shut up, if Real Madrid wanted him that bad they would have offered the £65+M they have offered Tottenham for Bale.

    If Real Madrid want Suarez, they are not getting him for no less than £60-£65M.
    If they have offered over £65+M for Bale and Surez is better than Bale, Rodgers and the owners need to stand strong and firm.

    At end of day Suarez has a contract, he should be fined for all his stupid out bursts. If Real Madrid do not offer £60M plus, then he should not be sold its that simple. No Player is bigger than the club, Every player has their price. So if Bale is worth £65+M, Cavani £53+M and Neymar Cost Barcelona £61M.

    At the moment Suarez is better than All of them and should be sold for no less than £60M. And Rodgers and the owners need to stand firm and strong and stand their ground, Suarez is not for Sale and will not be available for no less than £60M.

    And P Reina should be sold in swap deal witH C Tello(21) and £2m. Then these are the two Goalkeepers who need to be brought to club for combined total of £15.5m to compete with one another for the next decade. S Mignolet(25) Of Sunderland for £7-£8.5M and A Mccarthy(23) Of Reading for £5-£7M

    B Rodgers firstly needs to ship out more of the Dead Wood Average hard working players we still have at the club this summer:
    1: GK: B Jones 2: RB: Flanagan 3:CB: Coates 4:DM: Spearing
    5: AM: Pacheco 6: RW / RWF: Assaidi 7: LW / LWF: Downing 8: FD: Borini
    9: AM: Shelvey

    Those 8 dead wood average players should bring club in £27M, Plus the Carroll Sale = £15.5M = £42.5M

    And the owners need to give Rodgers £30M off their capital to spend also which would make total = £72.5M plus the sale Of Suarez ONLY if Real Madrid pay £60M then Rodgers could have £132.5M, Exactly what is needed for club to complete some Major surgery to playing staff/squad in order to build a squad that is full of class, quality, class competition for places,depth, hunger and can compete on all fronts through out the whole course of season.

    With the sale of those 9 dead wood average hard players. 1 world class player sold for £60M and a world class Player is sold in swap deal with £2m cash coming to club also.

    Rodgers could bring in these 14 players who would get club competing for all 4 trophies year in year out and amonsgt the elite sides in europe again in Champions League

    Defensive players: Seven / 7: Cost to bring them to the club= £36-£51.5M
    1: GK: S Mignolet(25) Of Sundlerland for £7-£8.5M to compete with
    2: GK: A Mccarthy(23) Of Reading for £5-£7M one another

    3: CB: T Llori(20) Of Sporting Clube De Portugal / Lisbon for £2-£4M to compete with Skrtel
    4: CB: A Pearce(24) Of Reading on a free Transfer to compete with Agger and Toure
    5:CB: K Papadopoulous(21) Of Schalke for £10-£15M to compete with Llori and Skrtel.
    6: LB: A Cissokho(25) Of Valencia for £4-£7M to compete and Cover Enrique
    6: DM: E Capoue(24) Of Toulouse for £6-£10M to Compete and Cover Lucas

    Attacking players: Six / 6: Cost to bring them to the club: £53-£71M
    7: CM: De Guzman Of Villareal for £5-£7M to compete with Allen, Gerrard and Henderson
    8: AM: I Munian(19) Of A Bilbao for £12-£14M to compete with Coutinho
    9: AM: H Mkhitaryan(24) Of S Donesk for £17-£22M to compete with Coutinho and Munian
    10: LW / LWF: D Capel(25) Of Sporting Clube De Portugal / Lisbon for £4-£7M to compete with IBE
    11: L Muriel(23) Of Udinese for £10-£14M to compete with Aspas and Sturridge
    12: D Ba (28) Of Chelsea for £5-£7M to Hopefully compete with Aspas, Muriel and Sturridge

    combined total of = £89-£122.5m those 13 players plus C Tello would get our club back amongst the elite teams in world football again

    And in with those players at club there would be at least two to three class quality players competing for a position: Like the Great Liverpool sides in the 80’s:
    Squad :players would compete like this: DEPTH:
    GKS: Mccarthy and Mignolet
    RBS: Johnson, Kelly and Wisdom
    CBS: Agger, Llori, Papadopolous, Pearce, Skrtel and Toure
    LBS: Cissokho and Enrique
    DMS: Capoue and Lucas
    CMS: Allen, De Guzman, Gerrard and Henderson
    AMS: Coutinho, Munian and Mkhitaryan
    RWS / RWFS: Sterling and Tello
    LWS / LWFS: Capel and IBE
    FDS: Aspas, BA, Muriel and Sturridge
