Liverpool’s left-back search looks to be coming to an end as the Reds are said to have entered “advanced talks” for Andrew Robertson’s signature. 

Liverpool Football Club have entered advanced talks with Hull City over their Scottish left-back Andrew Robertson.

Jürgen Klopp is said to have grown tired of Alberto Moreno’s erratic nature and will look to sell the Spaniard this summer, bringing in the 23-year old as his replacement and competition for James Milner.

The Liverpool ECHO reported last month that Robertson was the Red’s go-to left-back target having missed out on Fulham youngster Ryan Sessegnon, while Benjamin Mendy was also considered before he opted for Manchester City.

Robertson was crowned as the PFA Scotland Player of the Year three years ago and has enjoyed a fairly successful spell at Hull, becoming one of the key members of their back four.

Rousing the Kop’s own Alex Rodgers recently did a piece on why Liverpool would do well to sign the Scottish left-back and if you’re about to start wondering why the Reds have targeted him, you should definitely go and give it a read first.

Rodgers describes Robertson as the “modern day full back” who is “capable of complimenting the attack while not shirking his defensive duties.” Sounds exactly what Liverpool need. Plus, he’s left footed which is a very good start.

It is thought that Robertson would cost somewhere in the region of £8-10m, which, if he’s a success on Merseyside, could represent an absolute steal given the inflation of the transfer market this summer.

What do you think about Liverpool signing Robertson? Would you be happy with seeing the Scottish left-back come through the door?
