Everton fans are enthused by the reports in The Sun that they have bid £40 million for Manchester City and England stopper Joe Hart.
While many Everton fans feel that the rumours are likely to be wide of the mark, they are pleased to see the club being linked with such high profile players.
Toffees supporters are hopeful that their side will show some ambition in the summer transfer window - following the investment of Farhad Moshiri.
Everton are expected to have a large amount of funds to spend, and the fact that they are being linked with Hart has offered some encouragement.
Everton supporters have previously criticised their club for showing a lack of ambition, but if they were able to sign a high profile player like Hart it would be a signal of intent. Here is the best reaction on social media site Twitter.

If #efc are actually in for Hart it suggests silly money is about to be expelled all over the gaff— Nik of Loved Ones (@WeAreLovedOnes) May 24, 2016
I rate Joe Hart very highly, but no, he won't be signing for Everton any time soon.— Kris Hutchinson (@HutchTweeting) May 24, 2016
Rumors connecting Joe Hart to Everton. That would be amazing.— Tim Smith (@Cleansheet51) May 24, 2016
Even if Hart is not the goalkeeper who Everton do choose to sign this summer, they are likely to be on the lookout for a new number one.
At the moment Joel Robles is Everton’s first choice custodian, but they are likely to be on the look out for an upgrade for next term.
