Arsenal tipped to land former England goalie as an emergency option after Leno injury

Arsenal has been tipped by the Express to make a move for Joe Hart after they lost Bernd Leno to injury

Leno has been one of Arsenal’s most important players this season and he showed against Manchester City just how key he is to Mikel Arteta’s side.

The German was stretched off against Brighton on his second start on the return of football and his injury seems to be a long term one.

Express Sports is tipping the Gunners to make a move for Hart as an emergency signing at the end of this month.

The injury to Leno means that Arsenal has just Emiliano Martinez between the sticks now and the Argentinean isn’t that experienced at this level.

Hart has fallen from his days as the goalkeeper of Manchester City and the former England number cannot even get game time at Burnley.

He will be out of a contract at the end of this season and the Clarets will not give him a new deal.

Given how badly Hart has fallen, it might not be smart for Arteta to make a move for him, however, Arsenal isn’t in a position to be too picky at the moment.

Apart from Leno, Arsenal has also lost Pablo Mari and Granit Xhaka to injuries, although it appears that Xhaka might still play this season.

It should be noted this is more of an opinion from the Express as opposed to a rumour.

    The manner in which Guardiola got rid of Hart was ruthless. From England player to zero because he wasn’t good enough for City and isn’t good enough elsewhere.
    I hope that the Express was having a joke. We are already a joke

    Well l know we get accused of throwing money away at bad investments but if this is the case with
    Joe Hart it would be a good investment, because Arsene wanted to bring him here a few years ago.
    We would not have pay that much for Joe conisedring Burnley are not going to renew his deal Mikel Artea should try and sign him because l’m afraid Emiliano is not really up to the job(& thats not me saying he is useless) but l’m thinking about the Fa Cup & hopefully a push for a Eurpean
    competion!!!!!!!!

      This is Cech all over again! Arsene admired him and finally got him when he was 33 and past it!! Hart is now the same age…. and that worries me, Paul 😃

    From a reserve at Burnley to no1 at arsenal.That’s ZERO ambition.That’s the reason we will be below Burnley sooner rather than later.Whoever proposed his name needs to be fired immediately. The more I read the more im convinced Mikel is dragging us down. Give a chance to Emi or Macey because with Mustafi infront of him Allison or Gigi Buffon would tremble every time the ball is lobbed into our half.
