Norwich City would massively boost goalkeeping department by signing this veteran 31-year-old PL star


Norwich City Opinion: Why the Canaries should make a move for Joe Hart?

According to a report from the Daily Mail, Burnley want to sell shot-stopper Joe Hart this summer, with Sean Dyche thought to be keen on freshening up his goalkeeping department.

Joe Hart, 31, joined the Clarets last summer from Manchester City to replace the then-injured Nick Pope and Tom Heaton. Having started the season as first-choice at Turf Moor, the 31-year-old has not played since December.


The English goalkeeper has struggled for form in the last couple of years and has failed to impress in Burnley colours. Thus, Dyche wants to offload Hart, who has just over 12 months remaining on his current contract with Burnley, so he will likely be available for a cut-price deal this summer.

As per the Lancs Live, Norwich City are one of the few clubs interested in signing Joe Hart in the summer. The Canaries have a six-point lead at the top of the league table despite drawing 2-2 with Reading on Wednesday. They have been fantastic throughout the season in the Championship and seem destined to end the campaign as champions.

With promotion to the top-flight inevitable, Daniel Farke needs to start plotting summer transfer targets from now on. One area he needs to address in the summer is his team’s defence, with the Canaries conceding 50 goals in 41 games.

If Norwich City are to do well in the Premier League next season, reinforcing the backline is an absolute necessity. Thus, signing a couple of quality defenders would be a step in the right direction and if Farke can bring in an experienced Premier League goalkeeper, Norwich’s defence would become tough to breach.


Tim Krul is Norwich’s undoubted no.1, with Michael McGovern as a back-up. Krul has played in the Premier League earlier with Newcastle but McGovern has no top-flight experience at all. Hence, it’ll be wise to bring in a proven top-flight shot-stopper to compete with Krul rather rely on McGovern.

To that end, Joe Hart would be an ideal candidate. Hart may not have been in good form in recent years but his bags of experience and know-how regarding the Premier League will make him such an important addition to the Norwich backline.

Plus, he’ll undoubtedly add quality to the goalkeeping department, whilst battling with Krul and McGovern for the no.1 spot.


Thus, it’s a no-brainer for Norwich to pounce on Hart once Burnley allows him to leave.
