Liverpool favourites to sign Robertson

Liverpool are clear favourites to sign Hull City defender Andrew Robertson, according to the latest betting odds.

Leading bookmaker Sky Bet have priced Jurgen Klopp’s side at odds of 8/13 to sign the 23-year-old before September 3, with Newcastle next in the betting list at 12/1.

Scotland international Roberston, who has one-year left on his current deal at the KCOM stadium, recently suffered relegation with his side.

Their relegation was confirmed on the penultimate day of the Premier League season when they suffered a 4-0 defeat at the hands of their fellow strugglers Crystal Palace.

Nonetheless, Robertson has impressed with his individual performances this term, in particular, his ability to get forward and attack.

Klopp utilised James Milner at left-back for the majority of the campaign despite the Leeds academy product playing in his unnatural position.

There could be the possibility that the German could make a move for a left-back during the summer transfer window, with back-up defender Alberto Moreno constantly coming under flak for his performances.

Moreno started the season at left-back but was quickly shunned out of the first-team picture after a woeful display on the opening day of the season against Arsenal.

Since that day, he only started one more league match which clearly suggests that his manager does not have much faith in him.

Nonetheless, Robertson regularly featured for Hull this season, playing 39 matches in all competitions, including playing 33 league games.
