Paul Merson has raved about Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson in SportsKeeda, and has said that he is shocked that manager Jurgen Klopp could sign him for £8 million.

The former Arsenal star believe that Robertson is one of the best five signings that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has made for the Reds.

Merson has outlined what the £160,000-a-week (SalarySport) Scotland international left-back has brought to the team and how he has affected the Merseyside club.

Paul Merson on Liverpool’s Andy Robertson

Merson wrote about Robertson on SportsKeeda: “Andy Robertson came from Hull City and is a player any other team could have signed because he was right there in front of their eyes.

“It’s not like Liverpool’s scouting team unearthed a hidden gem from the far depths of Brazil, but you once again have to appreciate Jurgen Klopp’s vision because he counted on the Scotsman to do the job for his team.

“He’s been an unbelievable signing for them, and to think they signed for a meager £8 million is just baffling.

“Robertson has been a consistent presence in the Liverpool backline and he very rarely gets rag-rolled by opponents, while he is one of the best crossers in the game. He is very direct and makes a massive impact on both ends of the pitch.”

Brilliant footballer

In our view, Liverpool have one of the best left-backs in Andy Robertson, and he is still only 28.

The former Dundee United and Hull City defender has improved his game a lot since his move to Liverpool and is now a world-class player.

Robertson has been a key figure in Liverpool winning the Premier League, the UEFA Champions League, the FA Cup and the Carabao Cup in recent years.

The left-back is in his prime now and is not showing any signs of slowing down.

Liverpool have a real gem in Robertson, and it is truly astounding to think that he cost just £8 million.
