While the summer transfer window closed on Monday night, domestic deals can still be made up until October 16.
Alisson missed Liverpool’s extraordinary 7-2 defeat to Aston Villa over the weekend and the Premier League champions are set to be without their No. 1 for another six weeks after he injured his shoulder in training.
The Brazilian’s deputy, former West Ham goalkeeper Adrian, has struggled when called upon and made another mistake in the shocking loss at Villa.
With Alisson set to miss a few more matches for Liverpool, former England goalkeeper Robinson has urged Jurgen Klopp to complete a deal for a shot-stopper and says Butland could be ideal.
Butland has made more than 150 appearances for Stoke City – spending four years in the Premier League – and has also played for England.
‘If Alisson is going to be out for that length of time Liverpool are going to have to look at it,’ Robinson told Football Insider.
‘While the domestic window is still open we may see Liverpool do some business. There is a lot of good goalkeepers that are not playing football right now.
‘I can see Liverpool signing the likes of Jack Butland on a short-term deal. They need somebody like that.
‘A player that has the experience of handling big games. Somebody of that ilk.’
Klopp admitted Adrian could have done better for Villa’s opener against Liverpool on Sunday but defended his performance as a whole.
The Reds boss said: ‘Yes, the first goal was not cool, of course. But apart from that, I don’t think he had anything to do with all the other goals pretty much.
‘We didn’t help him tonight, let me say it like this, or we even did the opposite.
‘He’s a really good goalie who played 11 [Premier League] games for us last year and I think we won pretty much all of them. It’s all fine. Tonight our goalie was not the problem.’
