Stoke City v Manchester United - Premier League
Butland is a highly rated goalkeeper in the Premier League

Liverpool are having a massively improved season so far under the German boss, Jurgen Klopp. The Reds currently sit third in the Premier League table behind their arch-rivals Manchester United.

If Liverpool manage to keep hold of the spot, it would be their best finish since the 2013-14 season. However, Liverpool would clearly have been title challengers this season if it was not for their shambolic defensive line.

The Liverpool defence has committed some childish mistakes in the dying moments of the game which have cost them points.

It would not be unfair to say that their goalkeeping department is responsible for half of such losses.

Liverpool would be looking to bring in a quality goalkeeper to bolster their defence and mount a serious title challenge in the upcoming season.

Having said that, we take a look at the possible options Klopp could be looking at in the summer.


#5 Jack Butland

The youngster is clearly one of the most talented players in England. Butland currently plays for the English club, Stoke City. Premier League followers need absolutely no convincing about his abilities. The 24-year-old is regarded as one of the best goalkeepers in the League only to be bettered by De Gea, Ederson or Courtois.

He has 18 clean sheets to his name in 64 appearances. The Englishman would not cost a fortune for Liverpool. Moreover, in him, Klopp would get a player who has proven himself in the Premier League and has a long enough career in front of him.
