West Ham supporters have taken to Twitter to urge the club to move for the available Joe Hart.
Sky Sports reported on Tuesday evening that Hart is set leave Manchester City before the transfer window shuts after being dropped for the club’s opening two matches of the season.
It is said that Everton and Spanish side Sevilla are leading the race to sign the 29-year-old goalkeeper.
BBC Sport correspondent David Ornstein reported on BBC’s Sports feature (10.05am) on Wednesday that Hart does not want to commit to a permanent move with just two weeks left in the transfer window but a loan is a strong possibility.
The West Ham supporters have pleaded on Twitter that their team enter the race to sign the England goalkeeper with one fan claiming “he would probably win us 10 points a season”.
Here are a selection of the messages:
Joe Hart isn’t a bad keeper just not as good as we all thought. I would have him at West Ham but for Adrian ⚒

West Ham already have two senior goalkeepers with Adrian and Darren Randolph currently battling for the number one jersey.
The addition of Hart would give Bilic three well recognised options in goal and the Englishman could boast the experience to become number one.
Hart, 29, already has two Premier League winners medals to his name after playing an integral part in City’s rise during the Abu Dhabi era.
He is a firm favourite with City supporters for his leadership and commitment, after joining from Shrewsbury in 2006.
The goalkeeper has made 347 appearances for City since his move to Manchester and many fans are upset about the way he has been treated by Guardiola.
In other West Ham transfer news, they have made an approach for a £20million-rated defender.
