Torino want to sign Manchester City keeper Joe Hart on a second season-long loan.
Hart has enjoyed a successful campaign in Serie A after City boss Pep Guardiola decided to offload the England international last summer.
Several Premier League clubs are keeping a close eye on Hart ahead of a possible summer transfer, while Torino have confirmed they want to keep the 29-year-old.
But Torino cannot afford to sign Hart on a permanent basis and City would have to be willing to let him return to Italy on another loan deal.

Boss Sinisa Mihajlovic said: “I would like Hart to stay at Torino. But we know, and the club and him too, that we can't buy him.'
“At the most, we can take him on loan for another year, but it depends on what Manchester City want to do and what he wants too.
“We would like to know soon because if we have Hart here next year then that is one thing, but if not we have to make other plans.
“Torino can only take him on loan for another year so it is up to City to decide, but we need a decision quickly so we can plan for the future.”
