Do Liverpool see Jack Butland as solution to goalkeeping conundrum?

Butland to finally solve Liverpool’s keeper woes?

Liverpool are lining up a £40 million move for Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butlandin a bid to end their goalkeeping nightmare, according to the Mirror.

The 24-year-old could depart this summer with the Potters struggling to beat the drop in a relegation scrap, though Liverpool will still likely need to beat the world record fee for a goalkeeper — set by Manchester City last summer after signing Ederson for £37m from Benfica.

Jurgen Klopp has chopped and changed between Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius this season, with the German finally earning a run as the side’s No. 1.

But it is unlikely to prove to be enough to convince the Reds to not venture into the market again for a shot-stopper, with Roma’s Alisson another target.
