David James: 29-year-old international should seek move to Italian giants, Liverpool not an option
By Matt Bullin
David James has claimed that there’s no place for Joe Hart in the Liverpool side and that he should look to move to Juventus in the summer.
Despite playing well over 250 games for City, Hart was one of the first to fall out of favour when Pep Guardiola arrived last summer and he was subsequently sent out on loan to Torino.
The Shrewsbury born goalkeeper has been a regular for the Italian outfit and he has made 29 league and cup appearances for them since arriving in September.
The Mirror previously reported that Liverpool were interested in securing Hart’s services in the summer.
The Reds’ goalkeeping conundrum has been well documented – with neither Simon Mignolet or Loris Karius impressing between the sticks this season.

However, James has claimed that Hart should not return to the Premier League and instead look for a big club in Europe.
Speaking on TalkSport’s Sport Breakfast with Alan Brazil on Tuesday morning he said: “If I was him – I’d be looking at Juventus.
“The difficulty for him coming back to England is – where would he go? At the moment there’s some very good goalkeepers around.
“Liverpool have got two very good goalkeepers. He’s shown that he’s got the qualities and capabilities of playing abroad and why not go and do that for one of the top teams.”
Hart has 68 England caps and he has retained his No. 1 England shirt since moving abroad, showing that his national side still have faith in him.
