West Ham United are reportedly weighing up a summer swoop for England international goalkeeper Joe Hart, according to The Sun.

The Premier League side, who currently sit down in 13th spot in the English top-flight standings following back-to-back league defeats to Leicester City and Manchester United respectively, have been linked with luring the Manchester City shot stopper to the London Stadium at the end of the 2016-17 campaign.

The 29-year-old, who has 68 international caps for the Three Lions, has kept five clean sheets in 17 appearances in all competitions whilst on loan at Serie A outfit Torino so far this season.

Hart, who was shipped out on a season-long loan to Italy back in August after new City boss Pep Guardiola signalled his intentions to sign FC Barcelona’s Claudio Bravo as his number one at the Etihad Stadium, is wanted by Hammers boss Slaven Bilic for the 2017-18 term and is willing to pay around £15m for his signature.

West Ham are ready to allow fellow ‘keeper Adrian to leave the London outfit, with the Spaniard having just six months remaining on his current deal.

They have the option to extend his stay at the club by two years, but will not stand in his way if a potential suitor weighs in with a suitable offer.
