Torino president Urbano Cairo claims Joe Hart would be happy to remain at the club beyond the end of his season-long loan spell.
The England international moved to Turin on a temporary deal from Manchester City last summer after being deemed surplus to requirements by Citizens boss Pep Guardiola.
The 29-year-old has impressed after making 25 Serie A appearances for Sinisa Mihajlovic’s side and club president Cairo has now claimed the stopper would be happy to extend his stay at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino.
“We have an excellent relationship with him,” Cairo said. “He is happy to stay in Turin and we can work on it.
It depends on City, but I think Hart would be happy to remain. We’ll see what City have in mind and want to do.”
Hart has previously stated that he sees his long-term future away from City, with Guardiola seemingly happy with current goalkeepers Willy Caballero and Claudio Bravo, meaning a permanent switch to Torino could be on the cards.
A move to another Premier League club is also an option for Hart, who has been heavily linked with West Ham in recent weeks, but a decision on his long-term future is unlikely to come until the summer.
Hart is likely to be in action when Torino travel to the Stadio Olimpico for their next match against Lazio on Monday.
They are priced at 5.50 to secure all three points while the hosts are available at 1.57 and the draw is on offer at 4.20.
