Lots of Everton fans have been left gushing as the Goodison Park faithful confirmed the signing of Asmir Begovic on their official Twitter page.
The Merseyside club tweeted an announcement video in which the former AFC Bournemouth shot-stopper was pictured donning the brand new goalkeeping kit, as he is set to give competition to Jordan Pickford for the 2021/22 season.
Should Everton have signed Begovic?
He joins on an initial one-year deal with an option of a further year, and becomes Rafa Benitez’s second summer signing after Andros Townsend (evertonfc.com).
Begovic played a key part in the Cherries getting to the EFL Championship play-offs in the last campaign, playing in no fewer than 51 games in total over all competitions and keeping an impressive 18 clean sheets (Transfermarkt).
A player with a lot of experience of playing in the Premier League as well, the 34-year-old should provide adequate cover for Pickford over the course of the new term.

“Another great bit of depth”
“Happy to take him, experience and competition for Pickers”
“Tears in my eyes we’re winning the lot”
