The summer transfer window before the start of the current Premier League season saw some top notch transfers completed by clubs around Europe and a number of star players left the league in search of some game time while a bunch of high profile names joined the best clubs in the league to fight for glory. One player who was sent out of England but belongs here is English international Joe Hart. The Manchester City shot-stopper was not deemed good enough by Pep Guardiola who sent him out on loan to Torino in the summer.
Though Claudio Bravo’s form might have given Hart a way back at the Etihad, it is now understood that Pep Guardiola is plotting a move for 23- year old Benfica goalkeeper Ederson Moraes in January. This will mean that the Spanish manager has no plans of bringing Hart back into the team anytime soon. But the English international is easily one of the best players in his position in England and there will be a number of teams who will be ready to make a move for him if possible in January if not in the summer. So where can the English shot stopper get regular football in England? Here are 3 possible destinations for the Manchester City outcast to get
Here are 3 possible destinations for the Manchester City outcast to get first-team football in the Premier League:
The Anfield outfit have been carrying a problem in this position for some time with Simon Mignolet, their first choice goalkeeper before the start of the season, making the most errors that led to the goal by any player in the league in the last three season. Though they spent on Loris Karius in the summer, the German has just not been able to settle in and provide commanding performances which has left the club with Mignolet on goal again. It is clear that the two shot-stoppers at the club are not the players who can provide enough stability to take them to glory and Hart might be the man who can give them a shot at silverware. His experience in the league will allow his understudy to grow into a decent player without any pressure which will give both players enough chances to improve on their career.
West Ham United:
Slaven Bilic is another manager who has had a number of problems with his goalkeeping position this season. Adrian, the first choice at the start of the season, has not been at his best this campaign and had to be replaced with Darren Randolph who has not been great either. Bilic has decided to stick with Randolph at the moment but with Adrian’s contract coming to an end in 2016, Bilic will have to spend on a top quality goalkeeper and not many are better than Joe Hart. The England international is an upgrade on the current options at the club and if West Ham can get their season back on track, Hart can even help them take the extra step in years to come.
Ronald Koeman will know that his team needs a few additions before they can compete at the top of the table and the goalkeeping position is one that he should take care of in the near future. Marteen Stekelenburg, the first choice keeper at the club this season is 34 and is backed up by Joel Robles, who has been at the club for a while but is still not the first choice. Stekelenburg might have another year left in him but Joe Hart will be an attractive option for Koeman in the long term. Hart, the current number 1 for the English national team, will be a great addition for Everton and if Koeman can get his man, it can easily be one of the best transfers in recent times for the Toffees.
