Napoli, Fenerbahce target Begovic focused on Bournemouth

Bournemouth goalkeeper Asmir Begovic is not getting distracted by transfer talk.

The 31-year-old has been linked with moves to Napoli and Fenerbahce in recent weeks.

Per English media outlets, both clubs are willing to pay up to sign the player.

But when he was asked about a potential move by the Daily Echo, he remained tight lipped.

Begovic said: "At this stage of my career, it comes with the territory. I take those things as a compliment.

"It's nice to be linked and have people talk about you but, at the same time, it's just part of being a footballer.

"People will always talk and mention you in these things but it doesn't take away from my focus and concentration on a daily basis.

"I look at it as a more flattering thing and that's the best way to look at it. There is a lot of speculation and talk going on all the time but it doesn't take us away from our daily focus."
