The Daily Mirror reports that City are ready to make a bid of up to £15million for the Bosnia & Herzegovina international.
England international Joe Hart could also move to Stoke on loan for the second half of the season as part of a deal.
Begovic was also strongly linked with a move to City while Roberto Mancini was in charge at Eastlands.
