Liverpool are keen to sign Stoke Ctiy shot-stopper Jack Butland as backup for injured Alisson before the domestic transfer window closes on Friday, October 16, UK Mirror reports.
Butland who was once tipped to become England's no.1 goalkeeper has seen is career spiral downwards as he last featured for Stoke City in a 5-0 defeat to Leeds United in July.
However, Jurgen Klopp's fancies the 27-year-old as a worthy backup for Alisson as the Brazilian goalkeeper is out for six weeks due to injury.
Klopp is in the market for a new goalkeeper after losing confidence in Liverpool's no.2 man Adrian.
Adrian shipped in seven goals last week in the Reds 7-2 embarrassing defeat to Aston Villa with the first goal coming from his mistake.
Should Butland decide to make the move to Anfield, he could make his debut against Everton in Saturday’s Merseyside derby at Goodison Park.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Marcelo Pitaluga has joined Premier League champions Liverpool permanently after the goalkeeper impressed, helping the Brazil U17 team win the FIFA U17 World Cup on home soil last November.
He also featured twice on the bench for Fluminense’s fixtures in the Brazilian Serie A last season where he worked with Alisson Becker’s brother, Muriel.
Liverpool have confirmed that their new signing has resumed training at the Melwood Park and he will remain with the first team, while playing for the club’s Academy teams.
The Reds will hope their latest signing will grow to become the number one choice in the nearest future.
