Joe Hart could be heading to Italy with several Serie A clubs interested in the Man City goalkeeper, according to the Sunday Times.
Torino and AC Milan are reportedly tracking the England No 1, who is effectively third choice at City behind Willy Caballero and new signing Claudio Bravo
Sunderland are the only Premier League club so far to make their move to take Hart, who is still expected to be named in Sam Allardyce’s first England squad on Sunday night for a World Cup qualifier away to Slovakia next weekend.
The 29 year-old could decide to sit tight until the winter window in January — when form and fitness of other keepers may create vacancies — and to see how the situation unfolds at City, but it’s clear he has little hope of winning Guardiola around.
Moving to perennial relegation candidates Sunderland – who have just lost first-choice keeper Vito Mannone for three months through injury – would be a big step down for the two-time Premier League title winner
Torino finished 12th in Italy’s top flight last season and opened the new campaign last weekend with a 3-2 defeat away to AC Milan.
