Lille have been tipped to make a move for Burmley goalkeeper Joe Hart if Mike Maignan departs this summer.

Les Dogues could face a fight to keep hold of current number one Maignan as a host of clubs are said to be interested in him.

The French outfit are lining up targets if the 23-year-old does depart and it has been claimed England international Hart is one of their options.

Hart is expected to leave Burnley after slipping down the pecking order and a few clubs in the Championship have been linked – but the 32-year-old could well be tempted by a switch to Ligue 1 and Champions League football with Lille.

Former Manchester City stopper Hart, who spent time on loan in Italy with Torino in the 2016/17 season, has been capped 75 times by England but hasn’t featured for the Three Lions since 2017.
