Liverpool are set to tie Andrew Robertson down to a new contract, according to recent reports.
The Mirror claims that Robertson is on the brink of finalising a new five-year deal, worth £60k-per-week.
This is a move that works for all parties and it is shrewd business by Liverpool.
For Robertson, this is ideal. He has been rewarded for establishing himself as a regular in the starting line-up and he gets to double his wage.
The Scotland international also gets the security of a long-term deal and he could eye some genuine success with Liverpool over the next few years.
And for Liverpool, this is a smart piece of business. At £60k-per-week, they are not breaking the bank to keep a key component of their side.
Robertson is a Jurgen Klopp favourite and he plays in most matches for Liverpool.
With both defensive solidity and the ability to bomb forward and join the attack, Robertson has proven himself to be the perfect modern day full-back.
And he is particularly suited to Liverpool’s style of play under Klopp.
With a general dearth of top class left-backs in world football right now, tying Robertson down to a new contract is a clever move by Klopp and Liverpool.
They will get the best years out of the 24-year-old and for an initial £8m fee, this deal is looking more and more like a bargain with each game he plays.
