According to reports in The Guardian, Liverpool are closing in on an £8m deal to sign Hull City left-back Andrew Robertson.
The Guardian says that the 23-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Anfield following the Tigers’ relegation from the Premier League last season, and negotiations between the two clubs are nearing a conclusion.
Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has been looking for a new left-back with Alberto Moreno failing to impress and midfielder James Milner having to fill in there last term, and the Scotland international will be more of a natural fit in that position.
Liverpool supporters were quick to have their say on the rumour via social media, with the majority believing that the addition of Robertson doesn’t seem like a signing that a team that wants to compete for the Premier League title and in the Champions League would make.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
The Robertson Deal:
PL Experience ✅
Low Investment ✅
Upgrade on current LBs ✅
Doesn't effect other transfers ✅
Great deal. #LFC

£8million for Robertson is a good deal #LFC especially if he's seen as a stop gap

Andy Robertson as anyone will be welcomed to the club. I'll put my reservations aside but he will need to go up a level. #LFC

I think Robertson signing is great. Just because he's costing £8m and not £80 not important at all. TAA at right back. Sorted. #lfc.

Like many I'm not blown away by the Robertson transfer but as long as he is an upgrade on what we have I'm happy. #LFC

personally I'd rather keep Milner at left back instead of buying Robertson. I'm sure better is available with UCL experience too #LFC

I don't rate Andy Robertson , hope he proves me wrong. All he has to do is keep it simple and work hard, can't ask for more. #LFC
