Relegated club slap £30m price tag on Arsenal and Chelsea target

Hull City manager Steve Bruce has slapped a £30million price tag on Andrew Robertson amid interest from Arsenal and Chelsea, according to reports from the Daily Star.

Hull were relegated on the last day of the Premier League campaign, which has led to other clubs eyeing some of their prized assets.

Robertson has therefore been linked with an exit, with the defender costing the Tigers just £2.85million when he arrived from Dundee United last year.

However, Bruce is adamant that he will not let the highly-rated left-back leave cheaply, pointing to the incredible £30million transfer of Luke Shaw from Southampton to Manchester United the previous summer.

“Luke Shaw went from Southampton to Manchester United after just one season in the top flight for £30m, and I rate Andy on a par with him as a young player with bags of ability and potential.

“We have already had calls from clubs asking to be kept informed about his situation, and it might become inevitable that he goes.

“I’ve heard people talking about it taking £12m to buy him.

“That would just about buy his right leg – and the boy is left-footed!”

English champions Chelsea are looking to find a solid understudy to first-choice left-back Cesar Azpilicueta, with Filipe Luis failing to settle in since his arrival from Atletico Madrid last summer.

Meanwhile the Gunners are also keen on signing a left-back, targeting Robertson and West Ham United ace Aaron Cresswell.
