New £10m Liverpool signing Andy Robertson has completed his move to Anfield and while it’s a dream for him, he is keen to prove himself worthy.
The 23-year-old has had a busy week as he passed his medical and agreed on personal terms before being unveiled as Liverpool’s third summer signing on Friday in a £10m deal, as per Sky Sports.
Robertson joins Dominic Solanke and Mohamed Salah as new recruits, while Reds supporters will be hoping for a few more before the window shuts.
Nevertheless, this could be a key signing for Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp as it finally addresses the need for a left-back, with James Milner playing out of position all of last season to cover in that role with Alberto Moreno not trusted by the Reds boss.
In turn, Robertson now has the ideal opportunity to establish himself at one of the biggest clubs in the world, and while he’s naturally excited, he is desperate to prove that he is worth the money and can produce at the highest level.
“It feels a wee bit surreal just now. Obviously I’m delighted. There’s been a lot of speculation over the last couple of weeks but I’m glad that the deal’s finally been done and I’m a Liverpool player,” he told the club’s official site.
“There’s not many, if any, more special clubs than Liverpool. When you grow up as a kid you dream of playing with big clubs such as Liverpool and to make that a reality is a dream come true for me.
“I just want to prove to people that I can do it at this level, and hopefully I manage to do that this season and go on to do good things for this club.”
Meanwhile, Sky Sports add that Kevin Stewart has gone in the opposite direction for a fee which could eventually rise to £7.5m in another great bit of business from the club.
