Joe Hart is being linked with an exit from Manchester City this month after seemingly losing his place as first-choice at the Etihad, so should Arsenal be looking to strike a deal?
The England international has been amongst the top goalkeepers in the Premier League in recent years, and it is only his style of play which is believed to have lost him his place in Pep Guardiola’s plans.
The Spanish boss is claimed to prefer a ball-playing shot-stopper between the sticks, much like Manuel Neuer, which has seen Willy Caballero preferred for the opening two matches of the season.
Hart is now believed to be eyeing a move away from the club, and Everton and Seville are favourites to sign him, either on a permanent or loan deal.
Arsenal were cut in price to sign the goalkeeper prior to the season, but have now gone out to as big as 25/1 (26.0) to sign Hart this summer, which appears to claim that we are highly unlikely to bring him in.
One year ago we brought Petr Cech to the Emirates across London from Chelsea, and he has been a huge hit in the North, but he is 34 years-old now, and there is no telling just how long he has left at the top of the game.
The Czech goalkeeper quit international football following the European Championships this summer, in order to prolong his club career, which could be a sign that he is not as fit as he once was.
Hart is five years his younger, and should be able to remain at the top level for longer than our current number one.
Would you bring in Hart if he was available for a fair price? Would Cech be able to keep Hart on the sidelines?
Yes of course we should.
Goalkeeper right now is the main priority.
Only if he has potential to play as a center half or center forward.
Joe Hart is world class but so are the keepers we have too.But knowing Wenger very well it wouldn’t even shock me one bit if he decides to go for him though it seems unlikely.All the club needs is a centre back and a striker with terrific finishing.I also want to say a lot of people have been veruy naive in the way they’ve criticized Gabriel. He’s gonnabe better than Koscielny and gonna be world class soon.Just mark my words.I can even mention matches last season where he completely outperformed Koscielny.You people should support him because he has the X factor.
Strange how Players careers change.
Hart won the golden glove in
2010–11, 2011–12, 2012–13, 2014–15
yet here he is being invited to leave
at age 29 when keepers usually start
reaching their best years.
When you’ve won multiple CLs and have been training Neuer your standards get higher not lower, that’s how winners think. Guardiola wants the most consistent players with the strongest mentality, something most of the English players lack. Unfortunately our manager cannot see things the same way.
No. No. No. No. No. No. NO ! We already have 2 topclass GKs, what we need a is a FORWARD so stop giving the manager new ideas.
Hahaha Hahaha hahaha … Please stop! Hahaha ?
Mate, Even surgery wouldn’t be able to put a NEW idea into Wenger’s skull.

Which do you prefer?
Speaking about Mr Joe Hart, am I the only one not entirely convinced with Petr Cech’s ball distribution?
Its alot better than Wenger’s BULL distribution ?
@Redlondon actually we have four top class goalkeepers with one yet to be world class.Arsenal are blessed immensely in that area.What we just need now is a CB and a potent striker.I also see I got some thumbs down and am sure it’s because I mentioned Gabriel.Only few will see what am saying but hey it’s normal I get you guys.Gabriel Paulista will be a world class player.
Yes Arsenal should go after Joe Hart he is a Top Class Keeper. But Wenger and the Arsenal Board
will not spend the money required to bring him to Arsenal. So there is no point going on about this. Arsenal is No longer a Club it’s a Business and Mr Wenger is not a Manager he is an Accountant. The Fan’s are no longer Fan’s they are Customers.So when in Business you spend just what is required to bring in the Maximum amount of Money into the Business. This will bring big Dividends to the Share Holders. Who are The Board and Mr Wenger, Happy day’s for them year after year and Sad day’s for the so called Fan’s or should I say Customers.
There goes our Statutory rights! ?
that’s madness. In modern football you need a keeper who can use his feet and distribute balls from the back like Czech. The reason Hart is not wanted by pep is because he can’t play that way and he makes too many mistakes. We don’t need a keeper who just booms the ball down the field all the time.
Looks as if Campbell is heading off to Sporting Lisbon, So Does that mean that wenger will keep Gnabry at Arsenal or will he loan him out too?
With Iwobi and Ramsey out for a month at least, one has to ask … “wtf is Wenger doing?”
We can also forget about wenger signing a striker,
He is now comparing Sanchez to Suarez! and he will continue playing him as a CF.
Er..No thanks. Far from convinced with him. Far too many unforced errors.
How wenger has persuaded ospina to stay , I do not know. Anyway we do not need Hart.
