The goalkeeping position has proven to be a problem for Liverpool this term.

Reds boss Jürgen Klopp sat down for his pre-match press conference today, and responded to recent rumours linking him with a move for Manchester City-owned goalkeeper Joe Hart, as quoted by BBC Sport.

The 30-year-old stopper is spending this season on loan with Serie A side Torino, and the Sun reported yesterday that Liverpool are keen on bringing him to Anfield in the summer, for around £20 million.

The German poured cold water on the links with the England international, however, when speaking to reporters, stressing that he is not interested in signing Hart, as quoted by BBC Sport:

"He's a fantastic keeper, the highest quality, but it's not for us at the moment, nor in the future."

The Merseyside outfit have performed well as a whole this season, but the performances of their two senior 'keepers Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius have been far from assured, and many fans and former players have urged Klopp to sign a stopper who would bring genuine authority to the side this summer.

Whether the former Borussia Dortmund manager has another goalkeeper lined up or not remains unclear.

But if he does continue to put his faith in the two stoppers currently in the first-team squad, there could be even more questions asked of him regarding his judgment.
