Barcelona are eyeing Stoke City goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.

The Mirror says Stoke goalkeeper Begovic is on the list of names Barca are considering to ­replace Victor Valdes and has been watched by Nou Camp scouts.

Manchester United, ­Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool have all been ­trailing Begovic, who will leave the Potteries at the end of the season.

But David de Gea’s good form means United, like ­Chelsea and City, would not be able to offer 25-year-old ­Begovic guaranteed first-team football.

Arsenal believe they are well placed to convince ­Begovic to move to the ­Emirates as No.1, although Stoke’s £15million asking price could prove to be a ­stumbling block.
