Liverpool boosted in their pursuit of 24-year-old Englishman

Stoke City goalkeeper JACK BUTLAND is demanding to leave the club this summer in order to join a team that will be capable of fighting for the silverware.

The 24-year-old England international goalkeeper has been a rock between the posts for the struggling Potters. However, they look to lose their star player this summer with Chelsea Liverpool and Arsenal are interested to secure his signature.

Butland wants to become England No.1 stopper at the World Cup in Russia in the summer.

And if he impresses for Gareth Southgate’s side it will increase his price tag.

The Gambling Times says that England international goalkeeper has told his team that he wants to leave the club.

However, getting a deal done could prove tricky, with Stoke City said to be demanding at least £40m for the former Birmingham goalkeeper.

Even if they are relegated, the Potters won’t consider fee less then £40m for the 24-year-old goalkeeper.

Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool could all need a new stopper.

The Merseyside Reds manager Jurgen Klopp is believed to like the England man, while the Gunners may opt to draft in a long-term replacement for Petr Cech who has been turned 35 and expected to leave the Emirates Stadium after the season ends.

Chelsea could also pounce if they sell Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid.
