Finally, the Reds have secured a left-footed left-back, something fans have been waiting a long time for. The Scottish defender penned a long-term contract with the Reds on July 21st and will hope to strengthen the defence in the 2017/18 campaign.
Andy described the move as “a dream come true” as he made the move from relegated Hull to Liverpool. His friends and family were delighted and the 23-year-old was very happy with the move to a big club.
He spoke to the club about wanting to make it in Jürgen Klopp’s starting XI and is determined to prove himself to the gaffer as he hopes to take over from James Milner who is currently the first choice left-back, after Alberto Moreno has failed to impress thus far.
Robertson is currently training with the squad and is set to join his teammates in Germany for a friendly against Hertha Berlin and then a game against Bayern Munich and one of Atletico Madrid and Napoli in the Audi Cup next week.
The fee for the defender is rumoured to be £8m which could rise to £10m – some good business from Liverpool as they sign their third player this summer.
Speculation about Virgil van Dijk and Naby Keita continue as both players have continued the drama at their respective clubs. Van Dijk is currently training alone and was not included in the squad that went to France, meanwhile Keita injured a teammate in training and Reds fans are hoping that these players are still pushing for a move to Merseyside.
It is hoped that the remaining targets can be bought before the start of the season so Klopp’s team can get off to a solid start in their new campaign.
