Liverpool ahead of Chelsea and Arsenal in race for England star

Chelsea, Arsenal, and Liverpool are in the hunt for Stoke City star Jack Butland after the Englishman claimed that he wants a move away from the Bet 365 Stadium.

According to reports in the Daily Star the Anfield club have stolen a march on Premier League rivals, Chelsea and Arsenal in the race for the England international's signature.

Stoke are now lodged in the relegation zone, with just 11 matches to go, and Butland was reported to have told club chiefs that he was desperate to move on in the summer.

"I'm really pleased with the improvement in performances recently and we are finally feeling as though we are in games and could be picking up points", the goalkeeper told Stoke's official website.


The Gambling Times say Butland has told his club he wants to leave.

The goalkeeping duo of Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet has failed to impress, and the German boss sees the Stoke shotstopper as the flawless option.

Butland has a very strong chance of being the number one candidate between the posts for his national side in the FIFA World Cup during the summer.

Chelsea, may also be on the lookout for a new 'keeper with current number one Thibaut Courtois stalling on a new contract, and the Belgium global has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid. Petr Cech of Arsenal, is now 35 years of age and the former Chelsea man is losing his sharpness with every passing week and it's visible to the fans.
