Scottish defender Andy Robertson joined Liverpool in the summer of 2017 following Hull City’s relegation.Together with Trent Alexander-Arnol on the right side, they form a super-aggressive side-back and have recorded a number of assists.
With Greek defender Kostas Tsimikas waiting in the wings, Robertson has reigned as the absolute starter in the team, but is already approaching the turning point of his career at 29 years old. 30+ cannot hide physical decline, a difficult age for an up-and-down side-back.
According to 90min, Liverpool is interested in Alphonso Davies, a Canadian defender from Bayern Munich, as his successor. Other clubs such as Chelsea, Manchester City, and Paris Saint-Germain are also following the move.
However, the paper also reports that the Canadian defender’s first priority is to join Real Madrid, and he could leave for Spain in next summer’s transfer window. Bayern, on the other hand, are looking to renew his contract, but the player is believed to be behind an extension.
He runs up the left flank with menacing speed and has a high athletic ability. He has also played over 40 games for Canada and can play an attacking role for the national team. He has developed into one of the best left backs in the world and has become a player that all the major clubs are looking to sign.
For Liverpool, he is a target with few chances and is unlikely to enter the fray. He does not see a future playing at Anfield, but will he move to England or Spain next summer?
