Liverpool begins negotiations with Stoke City keeper Butland

Liverpool has turned their attention to Stoke City keeper Jack Butland as they aim to solve their goalkeeping woes.

The Reds are set to miss Alisson Becker for a period of six weeks and with back up keeper Adrian having shipped seven goals against Aston Villa in their last Premier League match, Jurgen Klopp is keen to reinforce the department with the arrival of Butland.

Butland has fallen down the pecking order at Stoke following the resurgence of Wales international Adam Davies and is keen to rekindle his career elsewhere this according to the Mirror.

The England shot-stopper who has only 12 months left on his Stoke deal last featured for Stoke in July where they were hammed by Leeds United; the club keen to offload Butland to reduce their wage bill as he is one of the highest-earning players in the team.

Players in the Championship still has time to make moves with the domestic transfer window open until Friday this permitting deals between Premier League and EFL clubs.

Butland who at one point was billed to be the next England first-choice keeper was valued at £30m when Stoke was relegated from the Premier League but that price should have reduced immensely.
