Speaking at his pre-match media conference, ahead of Tuesday's match against Liverpool, Antonio Conte reiterated that a move for Asmir Begovic would only come if a new goalkeeper is brought in.
While Begovic has voiced his frustration with limited time at Stamford Bridge behind number one Thibaut Courtois, Chelsea reportedly turned down a £10 million bid from Bournemouth last week as they've been unable to secure a replacement. This stance was reinforced by Conte on Monday when he told the media there was no fresh news to report on the future of Begovic. "I haven’t news about Asmir but I think we have to wait to tomorrow and we will see the situation, "Conte said. "Asmir wants to go to play and he knows also our situation. If we are able to find a good replacement he goes, otherwise he stays with us and helps us to fight for the title." Despite the desire of Begovic to leave it seems likely he'll remain at Chelsea unless the Blues can lure Celtic to sell goalkeeper Craig Gordon, who "BBC Sports" has reported will not be sold during this transfer window.
