Chelsea have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland, according to Football London.

Even at any early age, it was clear to see that Butland was a future England number one. He was a standout performer during his time at Birmingham City and subsequently earned himself a move to Premier League outfit Stoke City.

Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland is reportedly of interest to both Chelsea and Liverpool.

After establishing himself as one of the best goalkeepers in England’s top flight, Butland could likely pick from a host of potential future destinations. Football London believe that they know the names of two Premier League giants who are interested in signing the 24-year-old.

Football London report that Chelsea are interested in signing Butland, but he has one eye on a move to Anfield to play for Liverpool. The report claims that Stoke would likely demand £30M in exchange for their prize asset, so it may well come down to which side is willing to meet the asking price.
