Ex- Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy has urged Jurgen Klopp to take a punt on Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland. The England international has fallen down the order at Stoke City, with his Welsh counterpart Adam Davies taking his place between the sticks at The Britannia Stadium.
The reports of Liverpool’s proposed interest in acquiring Butland’s services come amid concerns over the Reds’ current second-choice goalkeeper, Adrian.
Murphy is a big fan of Butland and reckons a potential move to Anfield would be a huge opportunity for the former Birmingham City stopper.
“I like the thought of Jack Butland joining Liverpool,” Murphy told the Football Index Podcast.
“He is trying to find himself again after a really good start to his career when he was being spoken about as potentially England’s first-choice goalkeeper.
“Unfortunately for him, he’s fallen by the wayside a little bit with Stoke being relegated from the Premier League.
“This might be a tremendous opportunity for him to go to a wonderful club, learn from a brilliant goalkeeper, play some games, and start again. That makes sense to me – I think signing Jack Butland would be a clever bit of business.”
Liverpool will return to action on Saturday afternoon, locking horns with their bitter rivals Everton in the first Merseyside Derby of the season.
