Former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson thinks that Liverpool should try to bring in the Stoke City shot-stopper Jack Butland.
The 27-year-old has been in the headlines for all of the right reasons over the years after a string of consistent performances in between the sticks for the Potters.
Now playing in the Championship, Butland has kept 50 clean sheets from 168 appearances for Stoke and has picked up nine England caps since making his debut in 2012, as per TransferMarkt.
With the Brazilian possibly ruled out until late November, Jurgen Klopp has been told to sign the out-of-favour Stoke keeper by Robinson.
“If Alisson is going to be out for that length of time Liverpool are going to have to look at it”, he told Football Insider.
“While the domestic window is still open we may see Liverpool do some business. There is a lot of good goalkeepers that are not playing football right now.
“I can see Liverpool signing the likes of Jack Butland on a short-term deal. They need somebody like that. A player that has the experience of handling big games. Somebody of that ilk.”
Considering they had such a positive start to the new campaign after beating Chelsea and Arsenal, it seems like Liverpool have come crashing down to earth spectacularly.
This is not the first time that Adrian has put in a questionable performance, and also Alisson’s fitness setbacks are becoming an unwanted trend as far as the fans are concerned.
With this in mind, it would not do any damage for the Reds to consider this deal. With Butland behind Adam Davies in the pecking order, the former England international will most certainly want to play every week, especially for the Premier League champions.
But Klopp said after the Villa game that Adrian is “not the problem”, so it remains to be seen whether he will make a move before the October 16th deadline.
