Chelsea second keeper Asmir Begovic is considering an offer from Bournemouth in this transfer window and this is the reason why Celtic goalkeeper Ryan Gordon was linked to the Blues as a possible substitute.
Asked about this situation in today’s press conference, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte commented:
“I don’t know about many names I read, for sure there is this situation about Begovic and Bournemouth, but he is an important player for us, also in the chaning room, I like his commitment, if we get a player to substitute him he can go, otherwise he can stay here.
“Begovic will play tomorrow? Yes, he starts, he is a Chelsea player and people have to understand this, and for me he stays.
“I understand why he [Begovic] has to leave, but also the players have to understand me and the club. We are open to help him, if there are the conditions he will leave, otherwise, this is the situation.”
