West Ham interested in Chelsea 'keeper

West Ham are one of several Premier League clubs said to be taking a look at Chelsea's reserve goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.

The highly-rated stopper is currently playing second fiddle to regular number one Thibaut Courtois - and that has alerted a string of Premier League clubs seeking to enhance their own goalkeeping options.

Crystal Palace and Everton - in addition to West Ham - have all been linked with the Bosnia and Herzegovina vice captain in recent days, who moved to Stamford Bridge in July 2013 from Stoke in an 8million switch.

Meanwhile West Ham's current reserve 'keeper, Darren Randolph, believes that he couldn't have had a better season that his first at the club.

"I played a lot more football than I thought I would play and got into the Ireland team and helped us qualify for the Euro finals this summer," he told West Ham's website.

I have played league games and had a great cup run. As first seasons go it has been pretty unbelievable. I know everyone talks about a great team spirit, but we genuinely have that. There is no little cliques in the dressing room and everyone gets on."
