Joe Hart is set to leave Burnley after just one season and is reportedly attracting plenty of interest from the MLS, France and Norwich City.
The former England and Manchester City goalkeeper has not featured for the Clarets since a poor run of form saw him dropped for Tom Heaton in December.
Sean Dyche also has current Three Lions international Nick Pope at his disposal and admits one of his ‘keepers will “probably” depart.
According to the Mirror, Norwich are amongst a number of clubs vying for the 31-year-old’s signature ahead of their Premier League return next season.
Hart is one of Burnley’s top earners and is said to be unwilling to spend another campaign on the bench, so it would be a wise move for the club to offload him.
Daniel Farke could be looking to bring in a new goalkeeper to provide competition for Tim Krul, who hasn’t been convincing a lot of the time during the Canaries’ Championship-winning season.
The capture of a former Premier League winner would act as a good start to what needs to be a big summer transfer window for Norwich.
Four positions Norwich must strengthen this summer
Tim Krul has made a string of basic errors throughout this season in the Championship which leaves you wondering whether Daniel Farke should bring in a more established stopper.
With Ivo Pinto out of contract and Felix Passlack’s loan ending, Max Aarons will be the only ‘senior’ right-back at Norwich next season. He will certainly need back-up considering the, at times, gruelling requirements in the Premier League.
Norwich’s poor defensive record throughout their title-winning campaign can’t go unnoticed, and it won’t if they don’t upgrade ahead of the top-flight. With Timm Klose out of contract and Grant Hanley out of favour, the Canaries should look to bring in an experienced name to provide competition for Christoph Zimmermann and Ben Godfrey.
Capturing Teemu Pukki on a free transfer ahead of the season was genius, but we can’t expect him to make the step up to the Premier League and score as many goals as he did in the Championship. Goals are often the downfall for the clubs that are ultimately relegated, so Farke needs to ensure he has the correct options.
