Serie A outfit Torino are exploring the possibility of turning Joe Hart’s loan move into permanent deal, Tuttosport can reveal.
Granata jumped at the opportunity to land the Englishman on a season-long loan after he had been deemed surplus to requirements at Manchester City and he has since enjoyed a bright start to his career in Italy.
After the impressive showing in the 3-1 victory over AS Roma, Torino officials plan to try and sign the experienced shot-stopper on permanent basis.
Granata aim to offer Hart a contract until June 2019, worth €4 million per campaign, but they also need to try and agree transfer fee with Manchester City.
The 29-year-old has so far made four league appearances for the Serie A outfit, keeping two clean sheets in the process, while amassing a total of 266 Premier League outings for Manchester City since joining from Shrewsbury Town.
