Mega-rich Premier League outfit Manchester City are eyeing up a move for highly rated Glasgow Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster as a potential replacement for their out-of-form No 1 Joe Hart at Eastlands, according to reports in the Metro.

The in-form Englishman has been attracting the attentions of a whole host of big-name clubs from across the Continent of late after turning in a string of eye-catching displays between the sticks for the Scottish Premier League champions, especially in their recent Uefa Champions League campaigns.

So much so that the likes of La Liga champions FC Barcelona and Premier League champions Manchester United are both known to be interested in the 25-year-old, however, it appears as though it may be City who are to make the first move for the shot stopper when the winter transfer window does finally open again for business for the year in January.

Forster has been at Celtic Park since August 2010, when he initially moved to the Scottish giants on a season-long loan from Newcastle United, before the player joined the club on a permanent contract for just £2 million in June 2012.

And with a contract with the Hoops that runs until the summer of 2016, it is expected that the team from the north west will need to offer at least £10m to convince Celtic to part company with their keeper in the new year.
