English club keen to offload £15m Liverpool left-back target

Hull City defender Andrew Robertson has reportedly been made available for transfer during the summer window.

Robertson, who is rated at around £15m by the Tigers, has made a total of 116 appearances at the KCOM Stadium, but he has just a year remaining on his contract.

Due to Hull’s relegation to the Championship, he is unlikely to sign a new deal, especially with a number of teams in the Premier league said to be keen on his signature.

According to The Mirror new boss Leonid Slutsky has taken the decision to cash in on the Scottish international rather than potentially losing him on a free next summer.

Burnley will drop their interest after winning the race to sign Charlie Taylor, but both Watford and Liverpool are possible destinations for the left-back.

The 23-year-old left-back has been at Hull for three years and was due to be out of contract this summer—but his side wisely activated a one-year extension to ensure they’ll receive a fee if he leaves in the coming weeks.

One way or another, the Anfield club need to bring in a left-back to challenge James Milner next term, and as a talented and aggressive young full-back who—on account of his contract situation—won’t cost the earth, Robertson may prove to be a best fit.

Watford are managed by Marco Silva, who was in the Tigers dugout during the second half of last season.
