Chelsea are reportedly considering an approach for Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland, with Thibaut Courtois expected to leave Stamford Bridge this summer.

Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland has reportedly emerged as a summer transfer target for Chelsea.

On Thursday, it was claimed that Chelsea had ended contract negotiations with Thibaut Courtois, who has just a year remaining on his deal at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues have been linked with a move for Roma stopper Alisson but according to the Daily Mail, the West Londoners could make an approach for Butland.

With Stoke suffering relegation to the Championship, the Potters are likely to part ways with the England international with bids of around £30m expected to be entertained.

Butland is also said to be wanted by Liverpool but any move from the Merseyside giants could depend of whether they are successful in a bid for Alisson.

Should Courtois leave Chelsea, 36-year-old Willy Caballero would be regarded as Chelsea's number one with fellow veteran Eduardo temporarily acting as backup.
