Jurgen Klopp responds to Joe Hart rumours


Joe Hart is expected to be back in the Premier League next season, albeit not with Manchester City.

The goalkeeper is nearing the end of his loan spell with Torino and the Serie A club are financially unable to take him on permanently.

The Sun claimed on Wednesday that the England international is set to join Liverpool in a £20million deal, but that was before Jurgen Klopp spoke about the matter.

Klopp’s problems with Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet this season suggested that the Reds would be in the hunt for a new stopper, but the Anfield boss insists he is perfectly happy with his current options.

“You ask about goalkeepers but you don’t say the name. Is it about Joe Hart?” Klopp told reporters.

“We don’t usually talk about these sort of things but in this particular case I think we can. He is a fantastic goalkeeper, the goalkeeper of the English national team, highest quality, but we have highest-quality goalkeepers.


“It is not for us in this moment and hopefully not in the future – not because of Joe but because we already have two strong goalkeepers.”

Even aside from Karius and Mignolet, Klopp also mentioned his young goalkeepers who he appears happy to bring into the fold should they be needed next season.

“Danny Ward is at Huddersfield and playing a brilliant season,” he added.

“He is our player so we will bring him back so there is competition. The young ones have made really big steps, Caoimhin Kelleher and Kamil Grabara, and that is really good. I understand the question but I cannot give the answer probably a few people want but we think about it all the time.”


Pep Guardiola was previously reluctant to sell to another English club, but that seems to have changed as he looks to offload the two-time Premier League winner this summer.

Claudio Bravo’s own shortcomings will have left a lot of City fans scratching their heads as to Guardiola’s decision, but it’s been clear for a while that the former number one no longer has a future at the club.

Everton is another potential option for him as Joel Robles is struggling to convince, but Hart’s future is ultimately uncertain.
