After coming through Everton’s academy, U.S. national team defender Antonee Robinson will be playing for Fulham from 2020.He has played four full games in a row at the World Cup in Qatar and will be a mainstay at the tournament, which is scheduled to be held in his home country next.

There have been rumors of interest from Liverpool at the time of the departure of a string of left backs, including Andy Robertson and Kostas Tsimikas, but no moves have been made this winter.
Nevertheless, the club is continuing to follow developments and may add him to the team before the start of next season, according to the international media outlet Football Insider.
Joe Gomez, a 26-year-old defender who is also considering a return to the England national team, has filled the absence of both backs and has performed outstandingly in an increasing number of games.
Owen Beck was temporarily recalled from his loan spell but barely started, and the need to acquire a left back was quickly reduced.
He could replace the soon-to-be 30-year-old Scottish defender, but with the U.S. defender also turning 27 this year, he is unlikely to be a long-term option. Other promising youngsters such as Beck and Luke Chambers are also in the pipeline, and the position does not seem to be a desperate one.
