Barcelona chiefs ponder offer for Liverpool fullback Robertson

Barcelona chiefs are weighing up another raid on Liverpool after last week's Champions League meltdown at Anfield.

Having taken Philippe Coutinho last season, Barca directors are discussing Andrew Robertson for the summer market as they seek a young left-back signing.

Mundo Deportivo says Robertson is the type of player Barca will be targeting - despite the fact the Scot is under contract at Anfield until 2024.

The former Dundee United man cost a mere £8million when arriving from Hull City in 2017. Given the two clubs struck a deal for Philippe Coutinho that exceeded £100 million, one would expect a similar price range being the starting point for Robertson.

And added to which, Michael Edwards negotiated a clause that states Barcelona must pay a premium for any Liverpool player they try to sign in future.

The 25-year-old left the field with an injury during Liverpool's astonishing 4-0 victory against Barcelona midweek, but he is expected to be fit for the Champions League final against Tottenham Hotspur next month.
