West Ham to sign Joe Hart?

Joe Hart news

Hart could join the Hammers next season

West Ham United will look to step up their interest in goalkeeper Joe Hart at the end of the season. The England international is currently on a season-long loan at Torino from Manchester City.

The 29-year-old struggled to convince Pep Guardiola of his abilities at the start of the season, and this urged him to pursue a temporary deal with Italian club Torino.

According to The Telegraph, the Hammers boss Slaven Bilic is desperate to bring an experienced goalkeeper to his squad with Hart being the preferred option.

However, with Hart committed to Torino for the season, the club are likely to move for a short-term loan for Asmir Begovic, who has been sparingly used at league leaders Chelsea.

Guardiola does not see a future for Hart at the Etihad, and he would be free to join a rival Premier League side for £20m next summer.

Hart is said to prefer a stay in England next season as this would keep him in the reckoning for the national side.
