Liverpool linked with former England keeper

Liverpool are being linked with a move for former England keeper Jack Butland.

With first-choice Alisson Becker set for a lengthy spell on the side lines following the injury he picked-up during a training ground accident, the Premier League champions are set for an extended run of games with Adrian deputising.

And the Spaniard endured something of a horror evening on Sunday, night, gifting Aston Villa the first goal, and having to pick the ball out of his net even times, although he was by no means the only Liverpool player who was culpable during the match.

Butland who became the youngest keeper to play for England when he was first capped in 2012, has stayed with Stoke even since they have been playing in the Championship, but would relish the opportunity to move back to the Premier League with a big club.

Even if Alisson regains fitness again sooner than expected, Jurgen Klopp may want an upgrade in the back-up department.
