Arsenal Identified 24-year-old Englishman as a Replacement For Petr Cech

Arsenal have identified England international goalkeeper Jack Butland as their dream replacement for Petr Cech.

Signing a long-term replacement for the 35-year-old stopper is one of the top priorities for Arsene Wenger this summer.
The former Chelsea keeper has two years remaining on his current deal at Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal have already missed out the signing of Jordan Pickford who has completed £30m transfer to Everton.
And since then Arsene Wenger has turned their attention to English goalie Jack Butland, according to Bleacher Report.
The Stoke keeper has made 42 appearances in the Premier League and being one of the best shot-stoppers in England.
However, he has been contracted with Stoke City until 2021 and they are likely to demand a big fee for talented Englishman.
Butland’s agent Gary Mellor revealed that his client will leave the Potters only for the big club.
Mellor said: “If Jack’s going to leave Stoke it’s going to be for a huge club, a club that’s playing in the Champions League – and if that sort of club did come in for Jack I think Stoke would recognise that any player would want to go and play at the highest level they possibly can.
“But then Jack is in no hurry. He’s come out quite publicly to say he is happy at Stoke City and he wants to win things at Stoke City.
“It’s not something we have to be proactive with because every time he steps onto the pitch he just answers questions, like with England this week. Sometimes you look at his performances, like West Ham at home and in the second half at Southampton, and you wonder how good he can be.
“I am lucky enough to be old enough to have stood in the Boothen End behind Gordon Banks and I didn’t think I’d ever get a goalkeeper like that again for Stoke City. I think we have, I place him that highly.
“He’s special. We’ve thought he was special since he was 17 to be honest… but I am maybe a little biased.”
