Liverpool are closing in on the signing of Andrew Robertson from Hull, according to the Guardian.

The report claims that Liverpool have agreed a fee in the region of £8m for Robertson, who is set to sign for the club in the coming days.

Robertson, 23, has been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool this summer and looks to have now secured his move.

Despite Hull’s relegation from the Premier League, Robertson impressed at left-back last season and caught the eye of Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

Klopp was forced to play midfielder James Milner at left-back for much of last season, so bringing in a natural fullback was a priority for the German boss this summer.

Robertson has been at Hull for three seasons, two of which were spent in the Premier League – with one promotion winning campaign in the Championship.

The Scottish international is now set for a medical ahead of his official unveiling.
