Stoke City manager Tony Pulis has warned Asmir Begovic's potential suitors it will take "a hell of a lot" to prise him away from the Potters this summer.
The 25-year-old has been in terrific form this season and has been attracting interest from the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea. The imminent arrival of January signing and England star Jack Butland at Stoke has resulted in Begovic being strongly linked with a move away from the Britannia but Pulis insists the Bosnian will not be sold for a cut-price deal.
"No-one's rung me up to ask about Asmir and if they did the price would be... I can't even think. They'd have to spend a hell of a lot of money to take him away. I couldn't even give you a price because I haven't even thought about it," Pulis said.
"The fact we've signed Jack doesn't mean we're going to sell Asmir. I still think there's more to come from Asmir. He's going to get better. He's been brilliant this year but there's still more to come. Asmir over the past two years, has just got better and better. I really do think he's a top goalkeeper," the Welshman added.
Begovic, who joined Stoke from Portsmouth for £3.25m in 2010, has started all 35 Premier League matches for the Potters this season, keeping 12 clean sheets.
Pulis also remains confident he will be in charge of Stoke next season despite their disappointing campaign this term.
The Potters are 11th in the league table but only five points clear of the drop zone. The manager revealed he will sit down with club chairman Peter Coates to assess the situation at the end of the season but believes his future is secure.
"I will sit down with Peter and have a good chat with him in respect of what I think has gone on. There are certain aspects that you think you could have dealt with better," Pulis stressed.
"There is an enormous amount going on, the club is developing. I'd like to be given the opportunity to do that. There has been nothing from the club that suggests anything other than I want to continue here - and they are happy for me to do so," the 55-year-old added.
