Conte scouts City star

Conte scouts City star

Chelsea are being linked with a shock move for Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart after Antonio Conte watched him in action.

The Chelsea boss was back in Turin at the weekend to watch Torino take on Fiorentina, and reports have suggested Hart is the player he was most interested in.

The England international will spend the season on loan with Torino after being pushed out of the City picture by Pep Guardiola, and Conte could offer him a fresh start at Chelsea.

Thibaut Courtois continues to dominate the number one jersey at Stamford Bridge, but rumours refuse to go away linking him with a move to Spain and Conte could need a replacement.

Hart, who no longer seems to have a future at City, would fit the bill perfectly and Conte seems to be keeping tabs on his form should Courtois move on in the near future.
