Liverpool are among the clubs keeping a close eye on £10million-rated Hull left-back Andrew Robertson, according to a report.
The Daily Star claim the Merseyside giants will monitor the 22-year-old as they assess candidates to fill the problem slot in the team on the left side of the defence.
It is said that signing a new left-back is a priority for manager Jurgen Klopp, who has used James Milner as a makeshift option for the entirety of the campaign after losing patience with Alberto Moreno.
The Star report the major development that Robertson has decided to leave Hull at the end of the season irrespective of whether they win their relegation battle.
The Humberside club were given a massive boost in their bid to beat the drop on Saturday when they beat Liverpool 2-0 at the KCOM Stadium.
Eleven-times Scotland international Robertson played the full 90 minutes of one of the biggest upsets of the season.
The report claim the 22-year-old is unhappy that his deadline-day transfer to Burnley was called off at the last minute after the fee and personal terms could not be agreed when Hull could not source a replacement.
Stoke are also keeping close tabs on the player and could rival their two Premier League rivals for his signing in the summer window.
Robertson has made 25 appearances in all competitions, 19 of which have come in the Premier League.
