‘We won’t be signing him’
Jurgen Klopp has ruled out a Liverpool move for Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart this summer.
Sky Sports reported on Wednesday that Liverpool are not actively out to sign a goalkeeper in the upcoming transfer window.
Hart is currently on loan at Serie A side Torino, but has been repeatedly linked with a move to Liverpool this summer.
“Extra competition? You ask about goalkeepers but even though you don’t say the name, is it about Joe Hart?” said Klopp when asked whether he was considering strengthening in the goalkeeping department.
“We don’t usually talk about these sort of things but in this particular case I think we can.
“He is a fantastic goalkeeper, the goalkeeper of the English national team, the highest quality, but we have highest-quality goalkeepers.
“It is not for us in this moment and hopefully not for us in the future – not because of Joe but we already have two strong goalkeepers.”
