Southampton could move for out-of-favour Manchester City shot-stopper Joe Hart in the summer, should they lose first choice Fraser Forster to former manager Ronald Koeman, according to reports from The Sun.
The England No.1 was sent out to Torino on loan after being shunned from the Sky Blues squad upon the arrival of new manager Pep Guardiola, who brought in Claudio Bravo, supposedly an upgrade.
There looks to be no way back for the two-time Premier League champion, with the former Barcelona boss reportedly agreeing to let the 29-year-old leave the club this summer.
Furthermore, with Hart keen to stay in the English top flight, the powers that be at The Etihad are happy to sell him to a club they don’t necessarily view as a rival, which is where Southampton come in.
Former Saints boss Ronald Koeman has been liked with a move for Claude Puel’s stopper Fraser Forster, who has been on the wrong end of criticism from fans in recent weeks for some sub par performances.
The reports suggest that, should Forster make the move to Goodison Park this summer, the southerners could move for his international senior.
