Current Transfer News: Liverpool Move for Stoke Goalkeeper Jack Butland
In our current transfer news today, the Mirror reports that Liverpool are getting ready for a £40 million move for Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland so as to end their goalkeeping nightmare.
The 24-year-old may leave this summer with the Potters under pressure to beat the drop in a relegation scrap, although Liverpool will still probably need to beat the world record fee for a goalkeeper — set by Man City last summer following the signing of Ederson for £37m from Benfica.
Jurgen Klopp has chopped between Simon Mignolet & Loris Karius this season, with the German at last earning a run as the side’s Numero uno.
But it is not likely to prove to be sufficient to sway the Reds to not venture into the market again for a goalkeeper, with Roma’s Alisson another target.
