Joe Hart's recent displays must have been cause for concern for Manchester City.

The Daily Mail are reporting that Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola wants to bring PSV Eindhoven goalkeeper Jeroen Zoet to the club to act as competition for Joe Hart.

The England and City stopper has suffered an alarming drop in form over the past few months, highlighted by his shambolic displays for his country at Euro 2016 where he was directly at fault for at least two of the goals conceded by the Three Lions.

The Mail go on to claim the four-time capped Dutch international could be available for as little as £7 million, which would be a bargain in the current market.

The 25-year-old made the Eredivisie team of the year last season, after keeping 13 clean sheets for PSV and helping them go on to retain their title.

Zoet is both physically imposing, standing at 6 ft 2 in, and incredibly agile at the same time. He would provide fierce competition for Hart, and could help the 29-year-old regain his form from previous years by pushing him that little bit harder in training.

City certainly need to strengthen in the goalkeeping department with current back-up Willy Caballero's contract due to expire next summer, and Zoet would be the ideal acquisition for the Citizens.
