AC Milan hope to sign Bournemouth goalkeeper Asmir Begovic to replace Aston Villa-bound Pepe Reina.

Begovic has just returned to the Premier League club after spending the first half of the season on loan in Azerbaijan with FK Qarabag.

The Bosnia & Herzegovina international trained with the Cherries this week but his stay might not be a long one with Milan trying to take him to Italy.

They have already agreed a loan deal with Aston Villa to send Reina back to the Premier League and that put them in the market for a back-up option behind Gianluigi Donnarumma.

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe admitted at his Friday news conference that Begovic might head out on loan again, saying when asked about the 32-year-old's future: "I don't know. I think that's a situation where things may change, but at the moment he's part of our group and he's training very well."
