Quoted by the Liverpool Echo, Hull City have sent a stern warning to Liverpool over that they will not entertain a transfer bid for Andrew Robertson.

The Reds are keen to add another left back to their squad this summer as Klopp seeks competition for Alberto Moreno.

He has targeted Leicester City youngster Ben Chilwell but, according to the Liverpool Echo, is unwilling to pay the Premier League champions asking price of £10 million.

Instead he has turned his attention towards other targets, with the same report claiming that Hull City full back Andrew Robertson is among them.

However, a move for the Scotland international could prove a pricey one too, with the Mirror reporting that they have slapped a £12 million asking price on their man.

And it appears that they are not keen on a sale if the latest quotes from a spokesperson from the club are to be believed.

“I can confirm that Hull City have received no approach from Liverpool in relation to Andrew Robertson. And nor would we welcome one,” the Liverpool Echo reports them saying.

“We are trying to add four players to our squad for the new season and certainly wouldn’t want to lose one who has three years left on his contract.”

It now remains to be seen if Liverpool decide to test Hull City’s resolve over Robertson at any point this summer.

£12 million is a big price to pay for a player who is being brought in as competition, unless Klopp is planning to show Alberto Moreno the exit door this summer.
