7 The Daily Telegraph Thursday 6 August 2020 *** Sport Football Hart is ripped and raring to go Former England goalkeeper Joe Hart has posted a series of photograph­s showing how hard he has been working on his fitness in his search for a new club after the 33-year-old was released by Burnley at the end of the Premier League season In brief Lewis will cost Liverpool £20m Substitute­s change is put to vote By Matt Law Liverpool will have to pay at least double the £10million the Premier League champions had hoped to land Norwich City defender Jamal Lewis this summer. Lewis has emerged as a target for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, who believes the 22-year-old could be a valuable squad addition. Able to play at left-back or in the centre of defence, Lewis would help to cover for the loss of Dejan Lovren and also provide back-up for Andy Robertson. Lewis is represente­d by the same company as Robertson, but any Liverpool move for the player would not be straightfo­rward. Norwich rejected a £12million bid from Crystal Palace for Lewis in January and, despite their relegation, the Canaries are adamant they will not let any player go on anything but their own terms. Lewis has three years remaining on his contract, which puts Norwich in a strong negotiatin­g position, and they value the player at a minimum of £20 million. Having been the lowest spenders during their season in the Premier League, Norwich are under no financial pressure to sell their best players. Lewis is among a group, including Todd Cantwell, Max Aarons, Emi Buendia and Ben Godfrey, who are attracting interest. Promoted Leeds United have been linked with Buendia, while Aston Villa are believed to hold an interest in Aarons, who has been linked with Bayern Munich.
