Liverpool and Arsenal are both looking to sort out their goalkeeping issues before the start of the next season and are reportedly looking at Stoke City keeper Jack Butland as a probable target.
Butland is currently one of the finest young keepers in the English Premier League and his recent performances have cast a serious doubt as to whether the English International will be at Stoke beyond the summer transfer window.
With both Mignolet and Karius failing to live up to the expectations Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp’s biggest priorities will be to sort out his No 1 spot for the next campaign. According to the Sun, Klopp has made Butland one of his biggest transfer targets for the summer and will go all out to sign the 24-year-old.

With their regular keeper Petr Cech well beyond his prime, Arsenal too are sailing on the same boat as Liverpool.
The Gunners’ number one target for the summer still looks to be Atletico Madrid keeper Jan Oblak but multiple reports are claiming that if the move for the La Liga shot-stopper collapses then Wenger will pursue Stoke City’s, Jack Butland.
Butland joined Stoke City back in 2013 and after a series of loans spells the English International has finally cemented his place in City’s first eleven. Butland has made 25 appearances across all competitions this season and will undoubtedly be a good buy for either Liverpool or Arsenal.
