Jack Butland valuation should be tempting Arsenal into summer move

The goalkeeper is definitely one of the Championship’s best and looks destined to be playing Premier League football next season.

Jack Butland has been loyal to Stoke City following their relegation from the Premier League at the end of last season.

The goalkeeper opted to stick around at the Bet365 Stadium and has maintained his place in the team this season.

It doesn’t look as though he will be at the club beyond this season, however, with The Sun reporting that bids of £15 million will be considered in the summer.

Crystal Palace are said to be in for the 25-year-old, but it is fair to say he could aim higher than the Eagles.

One club who should be all over the chance to get Butland for that price is Arsenal.

 

The Gunners will need a goalkeeper in the summer with Petr Cech set to retire and an England international at £15 million would represent quality business.

Question marks hang over the head of German stopper Bernd Leno and Butland would add quality competition to the goalkeeping department.

The Stoke custodian has kept 12 clean sheets this season.

His distribution is excellent, he commands his box with aplomb and there is scope to suggest that he is still going to improve.

For too long the Gunners have had second-rate goalkeepers and boss Unai Emery could secure a fantastic stopper with the signing of Butland.
