Liverpool are keen on signing Fulham left-back Antonee Robinson on loan during the January transfer window, according to a new update.

The Reds continued their impressive Premier League season with a 2-0 win away to Burnley on Boxing Day, taking them to the top of the table.

There are a number of injury problems that Jurgen Klopp is having to tackle currently, however, with Joel Matip out for the season, and Alexis Mac Allister, Thiago and Stefan Bajcetic all unavailable in midfield.

At left-back, Liverpool are also having to make do without both options at the moment, with Andy Robertson missing since the autumn, and Kostas Tsimikas suffering a broken collarbone in the 1-1 draw with Arsenal last weekend.

For that reason, it may be that the Reds decide to delve into the transfer market for a new left-back next month, with journalist Graeme Bailey taking to X to reveal their interest in Robinson:

“Understand Liverpool are looking at Fulham’s Antonee Robinson – as they look to solve their left back issues.”

Our thoughts on Liverpool signing Antonee Robinson…

With Robertson not back until some point later in January, and Tsimikas expected to be sidelined for months, there is a definite argument to say that another left-back should be brought in.

Joe Gomez is a solid enough option there, in fairness, but a player of Robinson’s ilk could make a real difference, having impressed for Fulham since arriving from Wigan Athletic in 2020.

The 26-year-old has started 18 of his side’s 19 Premier League games this season, registering three assists in that time, and he has also averaged 2.7 interceptions and 2.6 tackles per game in the competition.

A loan move makes the most sense – if he catches the eye, the transfer becoming permanent next summer could be a possibility – and he would provide good competition for Robertson at a vital point in the season.

Fulham will clearly to desperate to retain the services of one of their key players, however, so they may not be willing to sanction a loan move, but it is a piece of business that could be shrewd if Liverpool can get a deal over the line.

Robinson was impressive in the Cottagers’ 4-3 defeat at Anfield earlier this month, keeping Mohamed Salah quiet and making both 13 interceptions and four tackles, further outlining what a good addition he could be.
