Klopp ready to give Andy Robertson new long-term deal

Liverpool started their season off with an impressive win over West Ham and go into their game against Crystal Palace on Monday looking to make it two wins out of two.

After their impressive summer business, Liverpool are now City’s prime contenders for the title.

With Keita, Fabinho and Alisson now joining Liverpool’s first XI, Klopp has one of the best squads in world football.

The only area where the Reds could’ve strengthened is in defence to give Virgil van Dijk a top-quality partner. However, with Joe Gomez back and fit, Liverpool might have already found one within their ranks.

Similarly, at right-back, Trent Alexander-Arnold has cemented himself as Klopp’s first-choice and on the other side, Andrew Robertson has shown why he is one of the best young fullbacks in the league.

With that in mind, the Mirror is reporting that the young Scot will be offered a new long-term deal to remain at the club.

The Breakdown

Arriving for just £10 million from Hull City last summer, the 24-year-old had a brilliant debut season for Liverpool.

The former Hull City man has three years left on his current deal but with his new contract, he will now earn more than £60,000-a-week.

A typical modern day left-back, Robertson is superb at attacking down the left flank and delivering superb crosses.

Moreover, his all energy, attacking style is in perfect harmony with Klopp’s, as proven by the new contract.

Signing him to a new deal is great business by the Merseyside club.
