According to James Pearce of the English newspaper Liverpool Echo, the Premier League giants Liverpool will not be pursuing a deal for Stoke City shot-stopper Jack Butland.
England international has been relegated with his team from EPL and will most likely be searching for a new club if Jack wants to keep his dream of being England’s No.1 goalkeeper alive.
James had this to say about the speculations arising again:
“Earlier in the season, I was told that talk of LFC signing Butland was nonsense and I’m not aware of that position changing. Personally, I don’t think he would be an improvement on Karius.”
The Reds have had their fair share of goalkeeping troubles this year but Loris Karius has improved extremely since the start of the campaign where German ‘keeper was being shot down by critics after a string of disappointing performances.
Liverpool are possible to let Belgium international Simon Mignolet leave in the summer so unless the club want to go into next campaign with Danny Ward as the second choice, then the club’s management will need to sign a substitution for the outgoing Simon Mignolet.
