Liverpool are reportedly “keeping close tabs” on Fulham and USA left-back Antonee Robinson, ahead of a potential move in the summer transfer window.
Andy Robertson has been an incredible player for the Reds since arriving from Hull City in 2017, but there will come a point when he needs to be replaced.
The Scot turns 30 in March, and while there is still plenty of life left in him for a few years to come, it is important that strong competition comes in, not to mention acquiring the signature of someone who could end up starting over him.
It will no longer be Jurgen Klopp deciding which left-back to sign, which still seems hard for Liverpool fans to accept, with the new manager and the recruitment making the call.
According to a fresh update from Football Insider, one player who Liverpool are monitoring closely is Robinson, as he continues to impress in a Fulham shirt:
“Liverpool are keeping close tabs on Fulham star Antonee Robinson ahead of a potential summer move, sources have told Football Insider. The Cottagers star, 26, is a regular for Marco Silva’s side and has impressed Anfield talent-spotters with his performances this term.”
Our thoughts on Liverpool signing Robinson this summer…
Robinson could be a perfect option for Liverpool this summer, coming in as an immediate upgrade on Kostas Tsimikas, who has done a solid role but can be improved on moving forward.
Joe Gomez has also done admirably in the absence of the Greek and Robertson through injury in recent months, but he isn’t a natural left-back and has limitations there, especially in an attacking capacity.
Robinson has been so impressive for Fulham this season, starting 22 of his side’s 23 Premier League matches and registering four assists in that time.
The 26-year-old was excellent defensively up against Mohamed Salah in Liverpool’s 4-3 win over the Cottagers back in December, and his average of 2.8 clearances and 2.5 tackles per game shows how effective he is off the ball on a consistent basis.
His age also means he would be arriving at a great point in his career, still having another five or five years at a high level, at least.
