West Ham are reported to be interested in signing out of favour Man City goalkeeper Joe Hart. The England international spent much of the last season on loan at Serie A side Torino, after he was deemed surplus to requirements by manager Pep Guardiola.
When Manchester City signed new goalkeeper Ederson from Benfica earlier this month, it gave a clear indication of their plans for the future, and sadly spelled the final nail in the coffin for Joe Hart. The 30-year-old became the first victim of manager Pep Guardiola’s ruthlessness last summer, despite winning two Premier League titles during his 10-year relationship with City.
Back in May, Hart admitted that if he were to leave Manchester City it would probably be for another Premier League club, and West Ham appear to be the most likely suitors.
The Hammers have made just one signing this summer, bringing in Hart’s former teammate Pablo Zabaleta on a free transfer. The east London side are also reported to be interested in Stoke’s Marko Arnautovic and former Man United striker Javier Hernandez.
