TRANSFER RUMOURS: Liverpool are believed to be closing in on an £8 million deal to sign Hull City left-back Andrew Robertson, who will become their third summer arrival.
Robertson has long been on Liverpool’s radar, where the story was initially reported 14th May, so hopefully we will see it materialise shortly.
The Reds will pay Hull around £8 million for the 23-year-old, who has a year left on his contract at the KC Stadium.
While Hull were relegated from the Premier League last season, Robertson was one of their most impressive performers, particularly following the appointment of Marco Silva.
He could join Liverpool as Klopp’s new first-choice left-back, with Alberto Moreno expected to leave and James Milner far from a long-term solution in the role.
Robertson made the move to the Tigers from Dundee United in 2014 for £2.85m, but despite Hull’s misfortunes the left-back has continued to impress as he has certainly gained the admiration of Klopp.
After making 115 appearances for Hull, Robertson has proved himself as left-back capable of coming up against the best attacks within the Premier League but with a lot of room left for development – the kind of player Liverpool seem to look for.
The 24-year-old made his debut for Scotland in 2014 against Poland and his since earned a further 14 caps for his country.
Moving to Anfield is a massive step up for Robertson and he certainly has the attributes to be a success. If he develops into a good full-back, then the reported £8m fee will be a great bit of business for Liverpool.
