West Ham are seeking major improvements to their squad this summer and will face a battle to secure big names, although they’ve been handed one big boost.

England international Joe Hart has impressed during his loan spell away from Manchester City with Torino and the Italian outfit are keen to secure his services for another season.

However, The Daily Mail reports that Pep Guardiola’s side would prefer to sell permanently– effectively ruling Torino out of the running, as they would not be able to finance a deal.

That leaves the door open for West Ham to make a move, although they could face competition from Premier League rivals Everton, as the Hammers need to bolster their own goalkeeping options.

The contract of Spanish stopper Adrian at the London Stadium is set to expire in less than three months, meaning the Hammers need to draft in a replacement, and 29-year-old Hart could be the perfect fit.

Hart is seeking regular first-team football as he looks to cement his spot as England’s first-choice goalkeeper ahead of the World Cup next summer and staying in English football will help his claim.

With City open to selling, a deal for Hart would certainly be affordable and TransferMarkt value his services at £12.75m.
