In a recent report, The Sun has stated that Manchester City are eyeing a move for Fulham defender Antonee Robinson this summer. It is believed that the Premier League champions are lining up a surprise move to bring the Cottagers left-back to the Etihad Stadium in this off-season (via The Sun).

Robinson’s Difficult Season At Craven Cottage

It has been a tough and gruelling season for Robinson as he failed to help the London outfit avoid relegation from the Premier League. The 23-year-old has featured in 32 matches this term, picking up four yellow cards in multiple competitions.

However, the Milton Keynes-born sensation has been a consistent performer down the left-wing as he averaged 1.6 tackles, 1.3 interceptions, 1.9 clearances, 1.0 crosses, 1.0 key passes and 1.8 dribbles per game in this Premier League campaign. However, he needs to work on improving his accuracy when distributing the ball after completing 74.9% of his attempted passes in the English top tier (stats via whoscored).

Robinson is yet to hit his prime, so there is still plenty of time for him to turn his career around for the better. The Etihad Stadium could be a dream destination for the player as he will be able to compete for some major silverware at the highest level if Pep Guardiola decides to bring him to Manchester this summer.

Should Man City Snap Robinson Up This Summer?

Robinson is a quick and agile full-back who can make some dangerous runs with the ball down the left flank. He has got a good work ethic and can deliver some pin-point crosses into the opponent’s penalty area.

The United States international has matured into a decent defender at the back as he has got the hunger to win possession back for his team. Plus, he hardly gets beat in a 1v1 footrace, so he could be a shrewd addition to Pep Guardiola’s squad if Man City can figure out a way to get a deal over the line for him during this summer transfer window.

At 23, Robinson has still got a lot of time to prove his worth at the highest level. Hence, Guardiola should consider snapping the 11-time Unites States international up this summer as he could unlock the best out of him in the coming seasons.
