#4 Jack Butland

Stoke City v Newcastle United - Premier League
Jack Butland is expected to move in the wake of Stoke City's relegation

By virtue of his exploits in the 2017-18 Premier League, Jack Butland has emerged as another goalkeeping sensation, who can go on to make a name for himself in world football.

The Stoke City goalkeeper remained largely unacknowledged last season in the wake of his club's humiliating relegation to the EFL Championship. Nevertheless, it would be criminal to not award Butland his due share of appreciation.

The Englishman made 135 saves last season, which was the most among the goalkeepers who played in the Premier League. He also kept six league clean sheets and was at fault individually for just one of the goals he let in.

In consequence, Liverpool could have secured a talented net-minder had they gone for the former Birmingham City player. Besides, only a bargainous sum of money would have been required to prise him away from The Potters.
