Post the £10m fee between the clubs getting agreed, Hull City defender Andrew Robertson will undergo a Liverpool medical tomorrow, as per Sky Sources.
The left-back will become Liverpool’s third signing of the summer if he successfully passes a medical and agrees personal terms. The 23-year-old has been linked with Liverpool in the past, but rumours of Liverpool’s interest in the player intensified this summer. The player made 39 appearances in all competitions last season, but couldn’t stop the Tigers from being relegated. Chances of the talented Scotland international moving to another club were high with Hull City now in the Championship. Several Premier League clubs were interested in his signature.
News of Liverpool’s Kevin Stewart moving to Hull has also made rounds on Wednesday morning. Stewart is believed to be costing the Tigers a sum of £8m.
We’re getting £8 million for Kevin Stewart which will cover the Andrew Robertson, that’s very good business

Stewart sold for same price Robertson is being signed for.
What a bargain.
No issue if Robertson doesn’t work out.
If he does its great.

Both Robertson and Stewart will be flying back from the two clubs’ respective pre-season tours to finalise the transfers.
Liverpool had to deploy James Milner as a makeshift left-back last season considering Alberto Moreno’s poor form. Manager Jurgen Klopp would certainly want a proper full-back at his disposal this season, especially considering Liverpool find themselves back in the Champions League.
