Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is claimed to be looking at overhauling his squad, and Joe Hart may well be sold to Arsenal.
Bookmakers are claiming that it is looking ‘increasingly likely’ that the England number one could move to the Emirates this summer, with odds having been slashed in half, from 8/1 (9.0) down to 4/1 (5.0).
Hart is not believed to be the type of shotstopper that Guardiola prefers to have in goal, with his preference for a ball-playing sweeper-keeper similar to that of Manuel Neuer, and the current City number one will not have impressed Pep with his appearances for England in the European Championships.
The Spanish boss is claimed to be ‘ringing the changes’, although there has been no sales as of yet, while four players have signed for the Etihad club. Ilkay Gundogan and Nolito are the biggest names to arrive so far, while Aaron Mooy and Alexander Zinchenko have also come in.
Hart is currently facing competition from Willy Caballero and youngster Angus Gunn, with the latter having helped his side through a penalty shoot-out with Borussia Dortmund in Beijing recently, although neither of those are expected to displace the England international from his starting role this term.
With the bookmakers having slashed the odds on Hart moving to the Emirates this summer, could there be a possibility that the Gunners actually sign him?
Arsenal have Petr Cech currently holding onto the starting role in North-London, and deservedly so, having been one of, if not the, most consistent goalkeeper in England in recent years.
Cech is 34 however, with his potential counterpart being five years his junior, but I still would not see the point in bringing in the City star.
Would you prefer to have Hart in goal instead of Petr?
