Liverpool are reportedly “very confident” that Andy Robertson won’t leave the club this summer, despite some reports suggesting otherwise.

The Scot has been a remarkable signing by the Reds since arriving from Hull City back in the summer of 2017, become arguably the best left-back in the club’s history.

Robertson has won the lot during his time at Anfieild, racking up a total of 282 appearances for Liverpool and chipping with 73 goal contributions (nine goals and 64 assists) along the way.

The 29-year-old has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich in recent days, however, with the Bundesliga giants potentially losing Alphonso Davies to Real Madrid at the end of the season.

Robertson is seen as a possible replacement for the Canadian left-back, should he decide he wants a fresh challenge at this stage in his career.

According to Football Insider, however, Liverpool remain “very confident” that they won’t be losing their brilliant defender any time soon, and expect him to stay at Anfield for the foreseeable future:

“Liverpool believe they will keep hold of Andy Robertson well beyond this summer, sources have told Football Insider. It is believed that the board are not worried by reported interest linking the left-back to a sensational switch to German giants Bayern Munich this summer.

“Well-placed sources have told Football Insider that the club are “very confident” Robertson will resist interest from other sides and remain at Anfield. The Bundesliga holder’s current first-choice left-back Alphonso Davies has reportedly agreed a deal in principle and personal terms with Real Madrid, which could open the door for the Scotsman to depart.”

Our thoughts on Robertson’s Liverpool future…

Losing Robertson this summer is something that Liverpool shouldn’t consider for one second, considering he is still an elite player with so much to offer.

Granted, the Scotland captain turns 30 years of age this month and has had an injury-disrupted season, but there is no reason why he can’t at least see out his current deal until 2026, if not stay beyond that date.

Next year, a decision may arguably need to be made about an extension, rather than risk losing him for free when his contract runs out, but for now, any exit talk should be quashed.
