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.

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.
