24 Y/O Defensive Ace Set To Be Offered A New Contract By Liverpool: A Shrewd Move For The Reds?

According to a recent report by the Mirror, Liverpool are ready to offer Andrew Robertson a new, five-year contract following his rapid rise under Jurgen Klopp’s tutelage over the past year. It is understood that the Reds defender will double his current wages and put pen to paper on a £60,000 a week deal that would keep him at Anfield until the summer of 2023.

The Rapid Rise Of Andrew Robertson

The Scottish talent has had a meteoric rise at Merseyside since his move from Hull City in the summer of 2017. He initially found it tough to break into Klopp’s first-team, but an injury to Alberto Moreno opened the way for him to impress in the Liverpool senior team.

Robertson grabbed his chances with both hands and has since been sensational for the Merseyside giants. He has not only kept his place in Klopp’s team but also became one of the German manager’s most consistent players on the pitch.

The Scottish prospect has arguably been Liverpool’s best player this season, and his tireless work ethic has often earned a lot of plaudits from fans and critics alike. The 24-year-old has featured in 15 matches for the Merseyside giants this term and has five assists to his name across all competitions.

What Does The Scottish Talent Add To Klopp’s Team?

Robertson is never afraid to work hard for his team, both on and off the ball, and can make some lung-bursting runs down the left flank. He has also developed his offensive game over the past year, and his delivery from wide areas has improved a lot this season as evidenced by his record of 5 assists in 15 matches for the Reds.

At the tender age of 24, Robertson has managed to become the captain of his country after earning 26 international caps for the Scottish national team. He is about to embark upon his peak years, so Liverpool would do well to retain his services for the long-term.

Is It A Shrewd Move For The Reds?

What makes Robertson a priceless asset for Klopp is the defender’s hunger and desire to press high up the pitch to win back the ball. His style of play suits Klopp’s brand of football to the T which is why Liverpool are so eager to tie him up on a long-term contract. It would undoubtedly be a shrewd move for the Reds to hang on to one of their most prized assets as he could help them win some significant silverware in the coming years.
