Liverpool tipped to do ‘clever bit of business’ before deadline

Danny Murphy reckons it would be a “clever bit of business” by Liverpool if they signed Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland.

Adrian has been struggling to prove himself as a trustworthy back-up for Alisson – who is out injured – following his mistake for their first goal in Liverpool’s humiliating 7-2 loss to Aston Villa before the international break.

The Spanish keeper went on to concede six more goals in the match, making it Klopp’s biggest ever defeat as a manager.

And there have been suggestions that Liverpool could dip into the domestic market for another goalkeeper before the window shuts, with Butland’s name mentioned as a possibility.

And Murphy reckons a deal for the out-of-favour Stoke keeper “makes sense” to him.

“I like the thought of Jack Butland joining Liverpool,” Murphy told the Football Index Podcast.

“He is trying to find himself again after a really good start to his career when he was being spoken about as potentially England’s first-choice goalkeeper.

“Unfortunately for him, he’s fallen by the wayside a little bit with Stoke being relegated from the Premier League.

“This might be a tremendous opportunity for him to go to a wonderful club, learn from a brilliant goalkeeper, play some games, and start again. That makes sense to me – I think signing Jack Butland would be a clever bit of business.”
