Cape Town - Defending Premier League champions Chelsea are reportedly plotting a move to replace Petr Cech with Stoke City goalkeeper Asmir Begovic 

The Telegraph report that Jose Mourinho has identified his replacement for long-serving goalkeeper Petr Cech.

With Cech's future all but certainly lying away from Stamford Bridge, Mourinho reportedly wants another Premier League player to replace the Czech international.

Stoke City's Asmir Begovic has been linked with Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United over a possible summer move but could end up in the blue of Chelsea.

Begovic has just one year left on his current deal.

Chelsea are expected to offer Stoke City £8 million for the player, who must decide if he wants to join Chelsea to fill the backup role soon to be vacated by Cech.
