Hull City’s Andy Robertson is back on Liverpool’s radar as the club wait on Alberto Moreno to indicate he accepts that his future lies away from Anfield.
Liverpool’s most understaffed position of all is left back and James Pearce reports that the Reds have options to address the problematic area.
After missing out on kid wonder Ryan Sessegnon, it looked as though Liverpool had very few options at left back as far as dipping into the transfer market was concerned.
Benjamin Mendy was reported as a target for the Reds but when that was rubbished too, it was back to square one for all concerned.
For The Liverpool Echo, James Pearce writes, “Andy Robertson is back on Liverpool’s radar as Jürgen Klopp prepares to sign a left back this summer.”
According to the Echo reporter, Robertson isn’t the club’s only target with the Scottish fullback one of a number of targets the Reds are considering.
Liverpool are waiting on Alberto Moreno, with the Spaniard looking set for an Anfield exit after a number of bids were submitted to the Reds in recent days.
If Moreno leaves, as is the expectation, Liverpool will buy a replacement. Once the 24-year-old returns to Melwood for pre-season training next week, he will consider his options.
James Pearce claims that Liverpool aren’t likely to buy a replacement, or make any moves to do so until Moreno has reached a decision on his future.
With Champions League football heading to Anfield next season, pending a two-legged qualifier, it is of the utmost importance that a new fullback is brought in.
That being said, whoever is signed won’t be a replacement for James Milner but will provide competition for the midfielder.
