Liverpool are reportedly on the cusp of making a surprise move for Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart, as a result of the England star’s difficult contract situation with his current club, as reposted by The Metro.
The Anfield club have emerged as a potential future club for the shot stopper extraordinaire, who has seen Man City not discuss a new contract with him, despite expectations.
Hart has only two years left on his contract with the Blues, and the player would have been very likely to have expected some sort of negotiation by this point in his deal.
The player has also expressed that he is somewhat worried about the lack of movement.
Hart said: “Anything about a new contract is news to me.
“I’ve heard nothing. I’ve got a year, nearly two years, left on my deal. That is all I am aware of.”
Liverpool are now seen to be seeing him as a possible option to replace Simon Mignolet.
The Belgian international has struggled thus far this season, responsible for two goals against West Ham, and the Reds would see Hart as a better option than former Barcelona star Victor Valdes, who they have also targeted.
