Jurgen Klopp is reportedly close to sealing an £8m deal for 23 year old Hull left back - and long term target - Andrew Robertson. The young Scotsman was widely believed to be Klopp’s second-choice behind Leicester’s Ben Chilwell last Summer but a move never materialised due to Hull’s unwillingness to part with the player. It’s thought that with his age and experience, Klopp sees him as a perfect long term option to strengthen the left back position at the club.
The former-Dundee United man has been in good form since Marco Silva arrived at the relegation battlers, appearing 27 times in the Premier League and contributing to all 3 of Hull’s clean sheets while registering 2 assists and a goal at the other end of the park. The Tigers activated a clause in Robertson’s contract in December, extending his deal for another year but it’s widely regarded that this was simply to protect his value.
