Liverpool will not attempt to sign Joe Hart this month or in the summer, according to Sky Sports
Liverpool will not pursue a move for Joe Hart, either in January or at the end of the season, with manager Jurgen Klopp having no interest in the England goalkeeper.
It’s believed that that, despite Hart’s likely availability in the summer, the club has no plans to target the 29-year-old, who is currently on a season-long loan at Torino from Manchester City.
Liverpool remain confident that current goalkeepers Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius will provide the top-level quality required for the team to compete for major honours.
Hart has impressed in Serie A this season but although Torino have confirmed they would like to sign the keeper permanently, president Urbano Cairo has made it clear that Hart’s salary, and City’s likely transfer valuation, would rule them out of a potential deal.
City manager Pep Guardiola sanctioned Hart’s departure at the start of the season due to his belief that the former Shrewsbury Town apprentice was unable to distribute the ball properly with his feet.
Guardiola replaced Hart by signing Claudio Bravo from Barcelona, but the Chilean has struggled to produce his best form for City so far.
Hart signed a new contract at City in 2014, tying him to the Etihad Stadium outfit until the end of the 2018-19 campaign.
But having spoken to Guardiola about his prospects at City, Hart has now accepted that he must move away from the club for the sake of his career, both at club and international level.
