Liverpool fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to speculation linking the club with a move for Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland.
According to Bleacher Report, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp wants to sign a new goalkeeper in the summer of 2018 and is looking at Butland.
It has been reported that Klopp will make a move for the England international goalkeeper in the summer of 2018.
The 24-year-old has had injury issues in recent years, but when fit, he is brilliant between the posts.
Butland has been on the books of Stoke since January 2013 when he joined from Birmingham City for an initial transfer fee reported by talkSPORT to be worth £3.3 million.
The goalkeeper has been on loan at Birmingham, Barnsley, Leeds United and Derby County in recent years.
Stoke are struggling in the Premier League table at the moment and are in danger of getting relegated to the Championship at the end of the season.

Butland to @LFC if we re trying to win leagues etc etc we need a top top keeper , why not olback @ atletico now that’s a keeper— vincentgallagher@64 (@bobbylorry64) 14 January 2018
That would be a Henderson move .... sideways or backwards— Jamal (@duffle404) 13 January 2018
Get in for Donnarumma at Milan. Probably not going too but don’t try don’t get!— Thomas Back (@Thomas__Back) 13 January 2018
WE NEED to use the money to fill the hole Coutinho left behind . We don’t concede more that 2 goals a game , butland could be a cheap yet influential alternative.why do you have 2 firstnames— Hamzah (@Hamzah2801) 13 January 2018
I don’t believe it tbh. Doubt the club are stupid enough to sign a Mignolet 2.0. It’s obvious we need a top keeper, not a mid-table one.— KopRich (@KopRich90) 13 January 2018
Hope not— somebody said (@rustytoldme) 13 January 2018
Not good enough. A sideways step.— Matthew H (@evilbob187) 13 January 2018
Like we were never in for Mahrez, the same will be for Butland. It's no coincidence the top keepers in the Prem are foreign. We need to buy better than what we already have and top English keepers just aren't at the same level as a De Gea, IIoris or Oblak, and we need TOP.— mark hanna (@Golly_Whiz) 13 January 2018
Next keeper needs to be next level, not same level.I trust Klopp to make the best call,we can’t rely on potential anymore, years are ticking by,get the best keeper available I don’t follow other leagues closely but stats show Oblak and Allison are up there but r they available?— Jos Bačić (@bacic22) 13 January 2018
I know Bogdan is bad but seriously do we need to replace our 4th choice keeper?— Chad Honey (@TH3B1GV) 13 January 2018
No thanks— Brian Savin (@Crofton_Parker) 13 January 2018
Get BOGDAN in, on a par with Butland— gethynowen (@gethyngo) 13 January 2018
