Stoke City goalkeeper Asmir Begovic has played down speculation linking him with a move to Arsenal and Manchester City, reports the Metro.

The 26-year-old Bosnian international has been in sensational form for Stoke over the last couple of seasons, which has led to the Premier League's big boys keeping a close eye on the shot stopper.

However Begovic has laughed off suggestions he will seal a move to either Arsenal or Manchester City either in January or next summer's transfer window.

Begovic believes he will go into next year's World Cup in Brazil as a Stoke City player.

"I don’t pay much attention to it [the speculation]," Begovic told the Metro.

"I take it as a huge compliment if people are saying nice things but there’s a pressure to keep performing so I have to concentrate on my job each and every day."

Begovic, however, has not ruled out sealing a move to a side of Arsenal and Manchester City's calibre during the later years of his career.

"Everyone wants to play at the highest level as possible. I’m no different," added Begovic. 

"That’s right through the club. Everyone is pretty ambitious, the chairman, the players, and I think we can all achieve great things here in the future.

"I’m very much looking forward to the World Cup but let’s see what happens.

"I’ve got two-and-a-half years left [on his Stoke deal], I’m pretty tied down, pretty settled, so there’s no situation there."

Begovic, who is valued at £15million, has played in all 16 of his side's Premier League games so far this season - keeping six clean sheets during the first four months of the campaign.
