In Focus: Liverpool’s move for Joe Hart makes perfect sense

As reported by The Sun, Liverpool are ready to make an offer to take Joe Hart to Anfield as their number 1 goalkeeper this summer.

What’s the story?

With Manchester City ready to let Joe Hart leave the club later this year when he returns from his loan at Torino in Serie A, he’ll be one of the hottest goalkeeper properties in Europe.

One man certainly a fan, according to The Sun, is Jurgen Klopp. The Liverpool manager is eager bring Joe Hart to the club and make him his main man between the sticks at Anfield.

The Sun also say Hart is keen to return to the Premier League and is also seeking Champions League football.

There are potential barriers though with Hart’s weekly wage and the fact City would prefer not to sell to a Premier League rival, according to the paper.

Perfect sense

A lot has been said about Joe Hart over the last 18 months. A few high profile errors have coloured people’s opinion of him and there are some who reckon he might not have what it takes to either play for England or one of Europe’s elite clubs.

Hart has been one of Torino’s better players this season. He’s put in a number of fine performances this season with displays against Roma, Empoli and Crotone helping to win points.

A return home would bring a lot of media attention and speculation but if he can get back to making excellent saves again, that would soon die down.

With the future of Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet fairly uncertain given the patchy form of both, perhaps a move to Liverpool would be beneficial to all parties. Joe Hart can prove he still has what it takes and Liverpool get a fine international goalkeeper on their hands.
