One of Liverpool’s reported targets for left-back could be available this summer—but Andy Robertson is taking his time on deciding his future.
The Reds have been busy at the start of summer as they attempt to bring in the additions Jurgen Klopp wants to improve his squad, with Dominic Solanke secured and Virgil van Dijk seemingly close.
AS Roma Mohamed Salah could be joining to boost the attack—but the Reds still need to improve the options available at full-back, with Hull City‘s Robertson one of the names in the frame.
After the Tigers were relegated from the Premier League at the end of the 2016/17 season there is speculation that he will be one of the players to depart the KCOM Stadium, but the Scotland international, preparing for a match against England, says exit talk is premature.
“That’s not something I’m going to worry about until well into the summer,” he said, as reported by the Hull Daily Mail.
“The only thing I can really say is that all the players face uncertainty. There will be people moving on but, for now, I’m just focusing on this game [vs England] in front of us. I do that because it’s so massive for the country.
“All I can do is play as well as I can on the day, and I’ll worry about my future after that. I’ll sit down after this game with the people I need to talk to, and decide if it’s right for me to stay at Hull, or if I should look to move on.”
Robertson, 23, has been at Hull for three years and was due to be out of contract this summer—but his side wisely activated a one-year extension to ensure they’ll receive a fee if he leaves in the coming weeks.
One way or another, Liverpool need to bring in a left-back to challenge James Milner next term, and as a talented and aggressive young full-back who—on account of his contract situation—won’t cost the earth, Robertson may prove to be a best fit.
