    Liverpool are close to signing Scotland left-back Andy Robertson from Hull City.

    The 23-year-old has been linked with a move to Anfield for some weeks and it is believed that negotiations between the two clubs are all but completed, allowing Robertson to become Liverpool’s third signing of the summer, following the arrival of Dominic Solanke from Chelsea and Mohamed Salah from Roma.

    Robertson joined Hull from Dundee United for £2.85m July in 2014 and despite the club’s struggles during that period, including most recently relegation from the Premier League, the player has regularly impressed.

    He made his debut for Scotland in a friendly against Poland in March 2014 and has gone on to earn a further 14 caps.

    The fee for Robertson is believed to be in the region of £8m and he maintains a realistic chance of being an instant first-team player at Anfield given Jürgen Klopp’s current left-back options are James Milner, a converted midfielder, and Alberto Moreno, who has fallen out of favour with the German.

    If we get Keita and Van Dijk, this doesn't matter. If we don't land those two though....

    Problem is that I don't think he's being signed for back up.

    Is it really the best we can come up with for LB?

    I don't think so but best of luck to the lad hope he does well.

    Also my old man recently raised the point that we've hardly ever won anything without a Scot so there's always that

    I do, Klopp loves Milner at LB and Milner isn't likely to get back into midfield anytime soon either.

    I think Milner will start the season at LB.

    It always blows up in smoke the myth that Klopp doesn't sign squad fillers.

    I can think of a quite few left-backs I'd have ahead of Andy Robertson but he's not as bad as some make out. At least he is a genuine left-back.

    If we land VVD and Keita this summer in addition to Salah I can stomach the signing of Robertson at left-back.

    I don't think he thinks Milner is the solution there. I think Robertson is being signed to play there most of the time to be honest.

    I think Klopp is happy with Milner as his first choice LB. I'd be surprised if Jimmy wasn't the main man in that position next season.

    I don't. I think Milner was being played there so as to avoid ever having to field Moreno. I'm sure Klopp understands that Milner is a fish out of water in that position.

    His corners were worth the £8m alone.

    Fair enough, we'll see sooner rather than later I guess. My money is on Milner to start more often than not at LB next season though.

    Hate to say it but that was ingenious from Fergie. Cost us that signing that window.

    Fans were cautiously optimistic about Cissokho and pretty optimistic about Moreno...

    The absolute lack of expectation around Robertson might help him settle in and do a job.

    If so I think it'd be a short transitional period before bringing in Robertson. Hope the lad does really well and proves me wrong.

    yes, and we didn't concede as many as we did because we had Milner at LB, it was because we had about a million different CB pairings last season with an inadequate screen infront of them in midfield.
