Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson could extend his Reds contract by an extra 12 months, according to a fresh report which emerged on Sunday.
The Lowdown: Incredible performer for Reds
The 27-year-old has been an unbelievable servant for Liverpool since joining from Hull City in the summer of 2017, outlining his status as one of the world’s best full-backs.
Even in a season of struggles for Jurgen Klopp’s side, Robertson stood out as one of the Reds’ better players, starting all 38 Premier League matches and being hailed as ‘unbelievable’ by Jose Enrique.
The Latest: Robertson could extend stay
Robertson has made 177 appearances for the Reds to date, scoring five goals and registering an incredible 37 assists along the way.
The Verdict: Great news for Liverpool
This is a major positive for Liverpool, with Robertson such a big player for the Reds, whether it be his consistency, attacking brilliance or defensive nous.
By 2024, he will be 30, but a player possessing his fitness levels could still be in his prime at that point, so extending his deal feels like a no-brainer.
It is vital that Klopp keeps his squad fresh in the coming years, signing younger talent, but keeping hold of a core of experienced stars is also of the utmost importance – Robertson is undoubtedly one of them.
