Everton are set to make an offer for Manchester City’s star goalkeeper Joe Hart according to The Sun.
The report state that the Toffees are lining up a bid for the England international this week with the view of signing him before the transfer window closes.
The Sun goes onto state that Everton are in pole position to sign Hart after City boss Pep Guardiola instructed him to find a new club.
Everton manager Ronald Koeman has refused to rule out a move for Hart. The experinced manager is remaining tight lipped about the Merseyside clubs transfer targets. The Mail states that City are prepared to listen to offers of £20 million for the 29-year-old.
“It is today Joe Hart, it will be tomorrow [someone else]. I prefer not to talk about players who are still in contract with other teams than Everton,” Koeman was quoted as saying by The Sun.
Hart joined City from Shrewsbury back in 2006 for just £750,000 and is the Citizen’s longest serving player. The 29-year-old international made 47 appearances in all competitions for City last season and kept 18 clean sheets.
