Jamie Redknapp has urged Everton to sign Manchester City outcast Joe Hart this summer.

The England number one has spent this season on loan with Torino in Serie A, where he has made 36 appearances in all competitions and kept five clean sheets.

Redknapp believes that Ronald Koeman should do everything he can to land the shot-stopper this summer, even if it means he has to sell some of his best players.

“Everton could be a perfect fit for England’s No 1,” he wrote for the Daily Mail.

“Ronald Koeman needs a top goalkeeper and will have the funds to bring in Hart — especially if Lukaku makes a big-money move.”

Goalkeeping duties for the Toffees is currently shared between Spaniard Joel Robles and Dutchman Maarten Stekelenburg, with the former keeping 10 clean sheets this season, which is five more than his rival.

Everton ended their top-flight campaign having conceded 44 goals, the joint worst of the top seven teams in the Premier League and could do with a more reliable player between the sticks.

Hart would make a good signing for Koeman as he has the experience of playing for a top English team that the Toffees need in their hunt for European football.

However, it seems likely that a scramble will take place to land the City man this summer, with Pep Guardiola not having the England international in his immediate plans.
