The performances of current England number one Joe Hart have come under repeated scrutiny in the Football Transfer Tavern after his latest blunder cost his side against Chelsea last weekend.
Now Jamie Sanderson from Metro has popped into the Football Transfer Tavern today to suggest that Manchester City may make a move for Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster as Hart’s poor form continues.
Newly appointed Citizens manager Manuel Pellegrini is not in a position where he can continue to see Hart costing his side crucial points against title rivals and he is on the lookout for a new shot stopper when the January window opens.
And today’s reports suggest that the 25-year-old Celtic keeper, who has been included in Roy Hodgson’s England squad several times but is yet to make his debut, could be set for a move to the Etihad Stadium.
Forster has made a real impression for the SPL side during their impressive Champions League displays over the last two seasons and that could see City bringing him to the Premier League.
They may yet face renewed competition from Spanish giants Barcelona who are thought to be watching Forster with a close interest.
Celtic boss Neil Lennon recently admitted that they wouldn’t stand in his way if a top European outfit were interested in matching their £10 million valuation.
The one-time Newcastle United trainee would love a switch to the Premier League as he seeks to not only replace Hart in the City squad but also in Hodgson’s Three Lions World Cup eleven.
Should City replace Hart and does his England colleague appear a suitable target? Let us know your thoughts below.
