Robbie Savage pinpoints the player Liverpool should sign

Robbie Savage has his say on Liverpool's transfer plans for the summer

Robbie Savage has told Jurgen Klopp to go all out to try and sign Jack Butland in the summer transfer window.

The Reds have inevitably been linked with a host of stars this month as the German coach considers bolstering his squad during the January transfer window.

Current Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has come in for plenty of criticism in recent weeks, despite the Belgium international signing a new contract with the Anfield outfit this month.

However, former midfielder Savage feels that the Reds should try and make a move to sign Butland from Stoke City this summer.

Savage told BBC Sport: “If I was the manager of Liverpool, what I would be doing in the summer is putting a bid for Jack Butland.

“That’s what I would be doing, and keep Mignolet as back-up. That’s what I would do.”
