That Liverpool are in the market for another left back is a well-documented fact at this point. So far, the attention has been focused on Leicester City's Ben Chilwell, but they may also be considering the Hull City's Andy Robertson. It appears that the league title holders have rejected Liverpool's £7million bid, reportedly seeking at least £10million for their 19-year-old talent.

While Liverpool consider their options regarding Chilwell, they are said to have also turned their eyes Hull City's way. 22-year-old Andy Robertson has been a fixture of the newly promoted Tigers since joining them in 2014. Now the Reds could be considering the Scottish international as an alternative if a deal with Leicester City fails to materialize.

At the end of last season, Liverpool released left back Jose Enrique, and after a patchy season from starter Alberto Moreno, Liverpool are light in that position. Whether it's Chilwell or Robertson or someone different, Klopp will be hoping to have the situation resolved by the time pre-season rolls around.
