Milan pick Begovic for Reina

Multiple sources in Italy claim Milan’s first choice to replace Aston Villa-bound Pepe Reina is Asmir Begovic from Bournemouth, ahead of Joe Hart and Lukasz Fabianski.

Reina is all set for a move to Aston Villa, on loan with option to buy, but first the Rossoneri want to have a replacement secured for their understudy to Gianluigi Donnarumma.

According to MilanNews, Radio Rossonera and Sky Sport Italia, the hot favourite is Begovic, whose loan deal with Qarabag just expired.

He is set to return to Bournemouth, where the 32-year-old is under contract until June 2021.

The Bosnia international has spent almost his entire career in England, with the likes of Portsmouth, Chelsea and Stoke City.

Other candidates for the Milan role are also from the Premier League, namely Joe Hart (formerly of Torino, now with Burnley) and Lukasz Fabianski of West Ham United.
