Former England keeper Paul Robinson has urged Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp to sign Stoke City stopper Jack Butland before his side returns to Premier League action.
The reigning champions' next game is away to Everton, who go into the Merseyside derby top of the table with a 100% record this season. While the transfer window closed on Monday for most business, Premier League clubs can still trade with EFL sides until October 16 - the day before Liverpool's visit to Goodison Park.
With first-choice keeper Alisson expected to be out for some time with a shoulder injury, Klopp has been backed to sign a new stand-in after Adrian's performance in the Reds' shocking 7-2 defeat to Aston Villa last week.
Speaking to Football Insider
, Robinson said:
“If Alisson is going to be out for that length of time Liverpool are going to have to look at it.
“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.”
Butland has nine caps for England and has plenty of Premier League experience, having made 77 appearances for his current club in the top flight.
