Manchester City's Joe Hart looks dejected
Bookmakers SkyBet have made Everton new 4/1 favourites in the race to sign Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart.
The 29-year-old stopper was left on the bench today for City's 2-1 win over Sunderland in their Premier League opener, with Pep Guardiola preferring Argentine veteran Willy Caballero.

Despite the signing of Maarten Stekelenburg, Ronald Koeman is understood to want to strengthen his goalkeeping options further still, and now would seem to be a good time to make a move for the City man, with Hart's first-team spot far from assured.
The former Shrewsbury Town man endured a difficult time with England at the Euro's over the summer, and was directly to blame for the Three Lions conceding on two separate occasions.

He is still highly regarded within the game, however, and would be a tremendous signing for Everton, should a move come to fruition.
He has made 346 appearances for the Citizens since his move to the club in 2006.
