Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has ruled out making a move for Manchester City outcast Joe Hart.
A report in the Daily Mail has claimed that the Gunners are considering a summer swoop for the England international once his loan at Torino expires.
The 29-year-old was shipped out to Serie A after City boss Pep Guardiola made it clear that the shot-stopper would not be first choice at the Etihad Stadium.
Despite his replacement Claudio Bravo struggling for consistency in between the sticks, Hart is not expected to win back his place at the North-West outfit.
Numerous clubs, including Liverpool and West Ham United, have been linked to the keeper, and the Daily Mail claimed that Arsenal have now switched their attention to Hart following Petr Cech’s blunder against his former club Chelsea.
However, in Thursday’s press conference, Wenger told the gathered media that he has no intention of signing Hart.
“No. I have three world-class goalkeepers and I’m very happy with the three I have.”
Bringing in a new goalkeeper should not be a pressing matter for the Gunners ahead of the summer transfer window.
Stripping Cech of his number one spot would be harsh considering that he is one of the best keeper’s in the Premier League.
His mistake against Chelsea, in which he conceded after accidentally sending the ball directly to his former teammate, was uncharacteristic.
One blunder should not result in his demotion from the team, and even though Hart would be a great back-up for the Gunners, the England international would not settle for second choice.
