England goalkeeper Joe Hart has been talking over a summer move to Chelsea, according to reports in Italy.
Calciomercato claim that Hart met Chelsea officials on transfer deadline day to discuss a permanent move to Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.
The on-loan stopper was surprised to see a cameraman filming him arriving at a Milan hotel to meet Chelsea executives and reacted angrily.
After Hart climbed out of the Range Rover he was travelling in he questioned the cameraman: “What you doing pal?”
The report claims Hart is “getting increasingly frustrated about his future” and the 29-year-old is believed to favour a move back to the Premier League.
Recent reports linked him with a move to Liverpool and these latest developments could well set off a summer transfer race to secure his signature for next season.
Hart has made 21 appearances for Torino since his summer loan move from Manchester City and has kept five clean sheets, whilst conceding 30 goals for the team in ninth place in Serie A.
The former Shrewsbury man is out of contract in the summer and so is able to hold transfer talks in order to sort out his next move.
Hart lost his place in the City side to Willy Caballero before the club then signed Claudio Bravo from Barcelona, leaving Hart to join to join Torino on a season-long loan deal in August.
Hart knows that he needs to look elsewhere for a permanent move, and says City will not stand in his way.
“This is the second time I’ve gone out on a season-long loan,” said Hart in an interview with Sky Sports in December.
“I’ve not been sent here to see how I do or see if I improve. I’ve been sent out because I wasn’t wanted.”
