Liverpool were keen on signing Hull City’s left back Andrew Robertson in the summer transfer window and when Newcastle were said to be interested in the player recently, we were surprised he hadn’t already gone to Liverpool.

Earlier this summer the news was that Jurgen Klopp was interested in the player and Robertson was keen to join the Reds.

Liverpool need to bring in a left back this summer so that former Newcastle winger James Milner can play in a more orthodox position next season, although he improved as a left back last season and got the job done.

The news is that Liverpool’s Spanish International  left-back Moreno is keen to leave Liverpool to get first team football elsewhere.

If Liverpool are indeed interested in signing Robertson, we see little chance of him arriving at Newcastle, although he would be a very good buy and Andrew had an excellent season for Hull, even though they were still relegated.

Robertson made 39 total appearances for Hull last season with one goal and two assists and he was one of Hull’s best players.

Apparently Liverpool have been watching Robertson for a couple of years now, so it the Reds decide not to go after him then hopefully Newcastle can move in quickly and sign the 16 times capped Scottish International.

Newcastle need a couple of full backs brought in this summer and Andrew would be an excellent acquisition for us.

Hull have put a fee of around £8M on his head, with  Burnley and West Ham said to be interested. although it looks like Burnley will be signing 23 year-old Leeds United left back Charlie Taylor.

The Glasgow-born player joined Celtic as a youngster, but was released at the age of 15 because he was considered  too small and he joined Queen’s Park Rangers.

He joined Dundee United in 2013 before finally joining Hull City in the summer of 2014 for £2.85M.

He has played 115 times for Hull City with 5 goals and 10 assists.

What do you think?
