Liverpool haven’t made many errors in the transfer market in recent years. Michael Edwards has been operating with surgical precision in the transfer market, identifying top talents at bargain prices and allowing Jürgen Klopp to mould these players into superstar footballers. One error the club may have made is not signing a new backup keeper this summer. According to the Liverpool ECHO, Liverpool won’t be signing Jack Butland to remedy the issue.
Liverpool linked with Butland
Let’s be honest, Liverpool signing Jack Butland has been nonsense from the start hasn’t it?
The whole ‘rumour’ appears to have started when Paul Robinson suggested that the Reds could move for someone like him in the Championship in response to Adrian’s errors.
Given the Spaniard’s hapless performance at Villa Park many have been questioning whether or not the club would look to replace him in the near future.
The Sunday Mirror today claimed that Liverpool were in negotiations to sign Jack Butland from Stoke City and that he could make his debut in the Merseyside Derby.
Liverpool rubbish Butland rumours
The Liverpool ECHO has reported that Liverpool are not in negotiations to sign Jack Butland from Stoke City.
The outlet has claimed that the Reds will not try and sign a goalkeeper before the 16th of October domestic deadline.
Liverpool are said to have faith in Adrian and Caoimhin Kelleher whilst Alisson Becker is out injured, the Brazilian isn’t expected back until November at the earliest.
What RTK has to say
We were never going to sign Jack Butland.
The Englishman is error prone and not much of an upgrade on Adrian, also the Reds aren’t that reactionary.
One of the club’s strengths in the transfer market has been their measured, precise approach – they don’t throw money out at anybody as soon as a problem arises, they wait.
Fingers crossed this is the last we hear of this rumour.
