Reports linking Joe Hart to Serie A side Torino have been gathering momentum this morning.
Hart had previously been heavily linked to Premier League clubs Everton and Sunderland, but it now appears that Torino are the new frontrunners in the battle for his signature.
La Gazzetta dello Sport earlier reported that Hart will be flying to Turin today to finalise the deal, with medical tests already booked.
Hart’s own agent, Jonathan Barnett, added fuel to the fire, stating that “It’s certainly a possibility.”
Transfer guru Gianluca Di Marzio has also thrown his hat into the ring, claiming that Hart prefers Torino to Sunderland as he is tempted by the prospect of a new challenge in Serie A.
It remains to be seen how much truth is in these stories, but with three fairly reputable sources claiming that Hart could be on his way to Italy, a move to Torino is looking likely.
