Almost done: Ace to seal Liverpool transfer within hours, personal term already agreed


Liverpool are few hours away from wrapping up a deal for Hull City left-back Andrew Robertson, according to the Sun.

Jurgen Klopp has been on the lookout for a long-term player for that position due to the inconsistencies of Albert Moreno, and James Milner that is not getting any younger.

The Sun claims that Liverpool capitalized on the stalled negotiations between Hull City and Burnley – who were on the verge of signing Robertson last month- to launch a bid for the defender and have agreed personal terms with him.

And he will now join Liverpool for a fee around £8 million, with the transfer expected to be completed by Sunday night.

His arrival at Anfield could lead to the exit of Moreno who already has an offer of £12 million from Italian club Napoli.

Robertson joined Hull City from Dundee United in a deal worth £3 million in the summer of 2014 and made 24 appearances, though they were relegated.

The following season saw them head back to the English top flight, with Robertson scoring four goals and assisting another five in all competitions but could not prevent his side from being relegated again.

The 23-year-old Scotland international can provide the wideth and attacking threath needed from the position for Liverpool.
