Having released Alberto Moreno this summer, one of the key positions that LFC need to strengthen is in the left back department. Although Andrew Robertson was undoubtedly the best left back in the Premier League last season, the risk of injury and what that could do to LFC isn’t worth thinking about.

Given Divock’s heroics last season and talk of a new contract, we’re not sure about this one, but one thing is for sure is that Liverpool FC are definitely on the hunt for an understudy to Andrew Robertson…
