It’s not been a good week for Joe Hart, and it could be about to get worse, as the Metro’s Jamie Sanderson claims Manchester City are targeting Celtic keeper Fraser Forster.
Hart's position as City’s No. 1 is no longer secure following a run of mistakes, capped by the error that enabled Chelsea to snatch three points on Sunday.
City boss Manuel Pellegrini is unsure whether to stick with Hart or go with Costel Pantilimon for the Premier League game with Norwich.
But that could be the mere tip of the iceberg for Hart, who could find himself facing competition from an England rival at club level.
In his piece, Sanderson writes:
Manchester City are eyeing Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster as doubts continue to grow over Joe Hart’s future.
City boss Manuel Pellegrini was already toying with the idea of buying another shot-stopper in the new year, but that has been boosted with Hart’s recent run of costly errors.
And top of the wish list is Celtic ace Forster, who will be tracked by City scouts in the coming weeks as the club line up an offer for the 25-year-old.
