Everton prepare stunning £40m bid for Man City star

Everton are set to try and pull off an audacious move to sign Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart this summer and will offer £40 million for England’s number one, according to The Sun.

The Toffees have a new wealthy owner at the helm and are expected to be busy in the transfer market after the disappointment of missing out on European qualification in 2015-16.

One of the Merseyside club’s priorities is replacing long-term goalkeeper Tim Howard, with a wealth of potential stoppers linked with the Goodison Park club in recent times.

Hart is adjudged as one of the Premier League’s best in his position and will start for his country at Euro 2016 in France this summer.

With Pep Guardiola moving to replacing Manuel Pellegrini at the Etihad Stadium, plenty of City players are in limbo over what the future holds for them under the Catalan coach.

The report suggest that Everton are willing to make Hart their highest-ever paid player and will offer the star £200,000 per week wages.
