West Ham keen to bring in Chelsea keeper Asmir Begovic - sources

West Ham United are lining up a move for Chelsea goalkeeper Asmir Begovic, sources close to the Hammers have told ESPN FC.

Manager Slaven Bilic wants to bolster his goalkeeping options after dropping No. 1 Adrian following a number of errors in recent weeks.

Republic of Ireland international Darren Randolph has started the last two games as Bilic looks to solve the defensive problems that have left the east Londoners perilously close to the relegation zone.

Sources have told ESPN FC that Bosnia international Begovic tops West Ham's wanted list.

Begovic has been backup to Thibaut Courtois since his arrival at Chelsea from Stoke last summer, but has made 28 appearances in the first team.

The 29-year-old has only started three games in the EFL Cup this season and would be interested in a move in search of regular football.

However, it remains to be seen whether Chelsea will consider letting him go out on loan.
