Liverpool finally addressed their goalkeeper issue by bringing in world-class talent Alisson from Roma earlier this summer.
After Loris Karius made two costly errors during the Reds’ Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid in May, it became clear that he was on borrowed time.
According to The Telegraph, Karius could be sold before the summer transfer window shuts on August 9, while Simon Mignolet may also be on the chopping block.
If both shot-stoppers move on, then it would leave Jurgen Klopp with limited options if Alisson was to be unavailable at any point during the season.
Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart is on the hunt for a new club as he is unlikely to get a look-in under Pep Guardiola.
The Times recently reported that the Premier League champions have lowered the shot-stopper’s price tag to £5m.

Hart has plenty of experience having won two league titles with City, but he has since dropped down the pecking order and lost his number one spot with England.
During last season’s loan spell at West Ham United, Hart was sometimes criticised for his performances.
On Twitter, some Liverpool fans have discussed the idea of recruiting the City man as a back-up keeper, and the opinions have been mixed.
At least he has more confidence than Karius and I definitely don’t see him being utterly bad in Carabao Cup games. Would be on board.

Seen some fans say “hey, Joe Hart would be great backup”😂🤣🤦♂️ he’s some kind of horrible Mignolet, Karius combination the likes of which the world has never seen. I wouldn’t be down for that no matter what the fee. I’d sooner keep one of Harry or Lloyd.👍🔴⚽️ #LFC

You must be nuts to want to sell karius and get hart as a back up, he is even more prone to errors 🙄…..karius is way better and just needs time out of limelight #lfc

I’d take Hart as back up all day long. https://t.co/IQC0MMf3ue

I wouldn’t impose Hart even on Aston Villa!

I’ve said it for many years.. bear in mind this is one aspect of goalkeeping but imo Hart is one of the best in a 1 on 1 situation. And as a back up I’d really like him
