Asmir Begovic would welcome John Terry following him from Chelsea to Bournemouth
Terry called time on his career-spanning Chelsea years at the end of the season and is yet to commit to playing on elsewhere.
Aston Villa were the latest side linked to the former England captain on Monday, but Begovic — who moved to the South Coast in search of regular football — wants to see his old skipper make the move to Vitality Stadium.
“If he fancies Bournemouth it would be great to have him there,” he said, speaking at the Asmir Begovic Foundation Golf Classic.
“He’s a great player and a great guy as well, so from that point of view it would be really, really good.
“He’s obviously the best defender ever in the Premier League. He’s a legend at Chelsea and he deserves the right to make the right decision for himself and his family.”
